Title: Turbocharger Research for Future Engine Demands

Dr. Srithar Rajoo said coventional internal combustion engine today have to evolve to catch up with the demand and necessities for clean and healthy living. The general consensus are internal combustion engine has to become smaller, fuel flexible and efficient, environmental friendly and yet still delivers the required driving demands. He believes that turbocharging will be one of the key enablers to achive these tough demands. However turbocharger design and operation itself need to evolve in order to be relevant.
