Research Center

BrainKorea21 Four Mechanical Engineering Research Division 

  • BrainKorea21(BK21) Four is a human resource development program initiated by Korea's Ministry of Education. The Misistry has targeted fostering world-class research-oriented universities and training excellent research personnel in each academic field·new industry field. Accordingly, the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Seoul National University is producing the next generation of global leaders by upgrading research infrastructure and graduate-level education.

Institute of Advanced Machinery and Design 

  • Founded in 1989, the Institute of Advanced Machinery and Design seeks to promote both basic research in mechanical engineering and interdisciplinary research in advanced machinery and design technologies. The Institute also seeks to contribute to the advancement of mechanical technologies in industry through university-industry collaboration. Its research endeavors are as follows: design for high precision machinery, high precision technology, mechatronics, turbo technology, hi-tech automotive engineering, aeronautical technology, training of professionals and engineers, dissemination of research findings and information on new technologies, and research projects funded by the goverment and industry.

Advanced Automotive Research Center (AARC) 

  • The mission of the Advanced Automotive Research Center (AARC) is to provide technical solutions for next generation vehicles in a variety of fields, including advanced powertrain, NVH, fuel cell, and hybrid engine systems. The AARC carries out research in five major areas 1) advanced engine technologies; 2) advanced transmissions; 3) NVH optimization; 4) fuel cell system; and 5) optimization of hybrid powertrain/driving strategy. Hyundai-Kia motor companies recently donated a 5 storey building dedicated to automotive research with a floor space of 6700 m2 and several state of the art test equipment. AARC's major facilities include an anechoic chamber, four engine test cells, a hybrid powertrain test cell, and fuel cell system and cartronics laboratories.


National Creative Research Initiative (CRI) Center


National CRI Center for Nano-Particle Control (CNPC) 

  • The National Creative Research Initiative (CRI) Center for Nano-Particle Control was established in December 1997, through a grant from the Korean Ministry of Science and Technology. The Center aims to make breakthroughs in nano-particle research, particularly heat and flow control techniques to control size, morphology, concentration, phase, and composition of nanometersized single component or composite particles as well as nanoparticle patterning techniques. Current research activities include understanding the fundamentals of the growth of nano-aggregate particles in flames, modeling of particle growth in thermal flows, establishing novel control and measurement techniques, novel patterning methods of nanoparticles utilizing the particle motion and trajectory control, novel flame and laser ablation methods.

Center for Turbulence and Fulid Control Research 

  • The National Creative Research Initiative (CRI) Center for Turbulence and Flow Control Research (TFC) was established in 1997 by the support from the Korean Ministry of Science and Technology. The primary objective of the TFC is to develop new turbulence control concepts based on physical reasoning, control theory, and biomimetic approaches for drag reduction, mixing enhancement, and flow-induced noise reduction. To achieve this objective, studies on turbulent flows and their control are being conducted at the TFC by highly accurate numerical simulations (direct and large eddy simulations) and laboratory experiments. Particular emphasis is placed on optimal shape design, boundary layer control, bluff body control, separation control, mixing control, turublence physics, CFD tool development, and sensor/actuator manufacturing.
