2020 October: Topology optimization and extensive FEA for my unic design- check out the latest magazine article about connecting rods in Race Engine Technology
2020 March: This gives "downsized" engines a new meaning- at 600 hp. It started as my crazy idea 8 months ago and can now be presented
2019 September: Proud to be both the engine designer and the brake caliper designer for the quickest and fastest stopping "production" car in the world
2019 March: Not extreme enough? My new cylinder head design increases flow on both the exhaust and the intake side where an innovative tumble tongue helps emissions without limiting maximum performance. The cooling gallery also gets an update to improve the temperature distribution
The flat plane crankshaft gives increased performance and reduced in-cylinder dilution due to the even bank firing. The crankshaft could be made extremely light due to careful design and high end
2018 December: Article in Uddeholm magazine about my work at
2017 November: Finally, fastest and quickest "production" car in the world
2016 October: Not only engines, topology optimization and design of chassis in USA- for 3D printed car at Divergent 3D
2015 December: Combustion system simulation and design for OEM project
2015 July: Atom Engineering AB (Limited company) is now the engineering/consulting company
2015 June: Supervising two M.Sc. students, thesis presentation- simulation of novel combustion concept
2015 March: Why not do it all? Responsible designer for hybrid powertrain layout, engine, exhaust system, rear chassis, brake caliper, e-brake, upright and more- for insane Megacar
2015 January: Design of single cylinder light duty optical research engine for OEM project
2014 June: Thomas is now working 100% as a consultant.
2014 May: Design of single cylinder heavy duty optical research engine for OEM project
2014 February: Finally some time for own engine, the Atom W-9 engine is up and running.
First impression beside the awesome sound is the low vibration level.
2014 January: The inauguration of the new combustion research laboratory at Lund University. The 6 million Euro investment adds 6 new test cells.
The test cells are updated with new modular research equipment for flexible and accurate control and are easily adapted between metal and optical testing.
As laboratory manager, Thomas has overseen the whole building process and designed the new test cells.
2013 December: Just for fun, design competition for General Electric jet engine. The
was to design lightest possible bracket and manage some given load cases.
Of almost 700 contributions from the whole world- 10 finalist were 3-D printed in Titanium and subjected to rigorous load testing. Thomas ended up in 2:nd place overall, just a couple grams away.
2013 September: Design of pre-chamber ignition for OEM project
