Outline Activities
Hideo Mori (fluids) performs the research of optical imaging measurement techniques for gas flows such as pressure/temperature sensitive paints (PSP/TSP). These techniques enable imaging of two-dimensional pressure and temperature distributions on solid surfaces noninvasively. Currently he applies optical imaging measurement techniques such as PSP/TSP and particle image velocimetry (PIV) to measurement of internal flow fields of turbomachines. Turbomachinery flows interacting with rotor blades are very complicated and experimental analysis of the flows is highly challenging. The advantage of the noninvasive imaging measurement techniques is very powerful for experimental analysis of turbomachinery flows.
To improve the optical imaging measurement technology it is very important to collaborate with chemical engineers acquainted with molecular sensors. He participates in the German-Japanese Joint Seminar “Molecular Imaging Technology for Interdisciplinary Research” for researchers in mechanical and chemical engineering.
As educational activities, he gives classes of gas dynamics, exercise of fluid mechanics, vector analysis, and design of axial fans, as well as research guidance for graduate students and undergraduate students including foreign students, and seminars related to fluid dynamics, turbomachinery, and flow visualization in the laboratory.
