110 years ago, the Swiss engineer, Alfred Büchi patented the turbocharger. A technology that was to make diesel and gas engines more efficient and thus save fuel consumption, lower emissions and increase engine power output. Are you an engineering student or just interested in the workings of diesel and gas engines? We would like to receive from you an essay on the evolution and impact of industrial turbochargers (on ships, power plants, mining trucks, offshore oil and gas).
What have been the key drivers for the technological advancement of turbochargers and what does the future of the technology look like, especially with regard to economic, environmental and legislative influences?
- Can your paper answer the question: How much would a pair of sneakers made in the US and shipped to Switzerland cost if shipped without a turbocharged container vessel?
The paper must be a minimum of 750 words and a maximum of 1200 words.
- Add your name, higher institution and contact details to the email.
