Modeling and experimental studies on a pneumatic propulsion system for vehicular applications

This project aims to develop and analyze a radial pneumatic propulsive system for vehicular applications in a different size ranging from city-driving short-range vehicles to 40-foot municipal transit and school buses. It is intended to bring the potential investors to Canada out of this project to collaborate with regarding academic and partner organizations. Since the transportation sector is one of the prior contributors of Canada’s GHG emissions (24%), any alternative solutions to conventional propulsion technologies carries significant importance to reach the GHG target that Canada promised under Paris agreement. The intern involved in this research project will have a significant opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge to the field and get an excellent experience to further develop their abilities. The partner organization will utilize this research to expand the business and have the upper hand over competitors. On top of all, ecological problems due to GHG emissions and possible solutions will be pointed out once again through this research project.
