ME Students clinch 2014 Best Final Year Project
A team of three students of BEng in Mechanical Engineering has recently awarded the Winner (Group Project) in the 2013-2014 Best Final Year Energy Project Competition organized by the Energy Institute (Hong Kong Branch).
 
The winning project titled “Thermal and Emission Characteristics of Permixed Biogas-fired Impinging Flames”, carried out by Cheng Wai Chun, Kwong Lai Yeung and Yuen Wai Ying under the supervision of Prof. CW Leung, is an experimental study to investigate the feasibility of domestic applications of biogas as an alternative gaseous hydrocarbon fuel with the use of hydrogen enhancement technique. With a main focus of examining the effects of Reynolds number and equivalence ratio to the flame stability, thermal performance and air pollutant emissions of the hydrogen/biogas-fired premixed flame with different fraction of hydrogen addition, the project indicates the potential usage of hydrogen-enriched biogas in low temperature heating applications such as domestic heating.
 
Each year the Energy Institute (Hong Kong Branch) invites all engineering final year students from all universities in Hong Kong to compete for the Best Final Year Project Award with their final year projects in the topic of energy /fuel.
