Dave Foster

Phil and Jean Myers Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering

College of Engineering

The primary foci of Dave Foster's research include combustion processes, emissions, fuels and aftertreatment systems associated with internal combustion engines. His experimental work is performed on single cylinder research engines, with applications ranging from personal transportation to heavy duty transport. Foster's modeling efforts address engineering-level models of engine and aftertreatment systems.
