Dr Mehmet ÇAKIR is an Associate Professor at the Department of Marine Engineering at Yildiz Technical University, and received his BSc and PhD from the Suleyman Demirel University in 2005 and 2013, respectively.
He had been as a visiting fellow to research on alternative fueled engine and combustion at Powertrain Research Group of Nottingham University with a TUBITAK International Research Scholarship between 2018-2020. He successfully led various innovative projects supported by TUBITAK and The Ministry of Industry and Technology.
His core research themes are focused on the novel combustion modes in engines, laminar flame velocity measures and visualization, carbon-free fuels and ammonia cracking systems for ICEs.
Dr Çakır is open to enquiries of potential home and international PhD candidates and researchers who are interested in the following research areas
Current projects include:
Software development and monitoring of engine performance for ICEs
Laminer combustion researches for ammonia/hydrogen/methane mixtures
Combustion chamber designs and novel ignition modes
Schlieren imaging and constant volume combustion bomb tests
Computational fluid dynamics modeling of combustion
