Toyotaka Yoshida has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Abstract: An object of the invention is to provide a scroll structure of a turbine housing of a twin scroll turbocharger of which flow-through abilities of two exhaust gas passages are equal to each other. A tongue (44), which partitions a scroll portion (26) into an outer peripheral portion (26a) and an inner peripheral portion (26b) in a longitudinal section parallel to a flow direction of an exhaust gas, is formed at the turbine housing (32), the tongue (44) includes a front-side tongue (46) and a rear-side tongue (48) that respectively close the two exhaust gas passages at the outer peripheral portion (26a) in a cross-section, and respective inner sides (46a, 48a) of the front-side tongue (46) and the rear-side tongue (48) and respective minimal outflow width portions (56a, 58a) of a front-side passage (22) and a rear-side passage (24) are formed substantially parallel to each other in the cross-section at a downstream end of the outer peripheral portion (26a).
Abstract: A variable geometry turbine includes a fluid space formed by a nozzle mount and a nozzle plate; and a plurality of nozzle vanes arranged in the fluid space at certain intervals in the circumferential direction so as to partition the fluid space. The nozzle vanes are supported by shafts on the nozzle mount, in such a manner as to be capable of turning. The flow rate of the discharged fluid can be adjusted by opening or closing the cross-sectional area of a flow path formed by the adjacent nozzle vanes. The nozzle plate is provided with plate projections protruding toward the nozzle vanes further than, at least, end surfaces of the nozzle vanes, so as to cover the spaces between leading edges of the nozzle vanes and trailing edges of the nozzle vanes adjacent thereto, when the nozzle vanes are at a closed position.

Abstract: In a turbine housing 12 of a turbocharger 10A of a twin-scroll type, a scroll-shaped passage is separated into a front scroll passage 42 and a rear scroll passage 44 by a partition wall 40. A front wall 50 and a root part 40b of the partition wall 40 curve toward a front side to secure cross-sectional areas a1, a2, a3 . . . and b1, b2, b3 . . . . The scroll passages 42, 44 are formed to have equal cross-sectional areas, a tip part 40a of the partition wall 40 is arranged perpendicular to the turbine rotor blade 26 and the scroll passages 42, 44 are symmetrical near the tip part 40a about an axis X so as to eliminate the flow rate difference.
Abstract: A turbine wheel includes a plurality of blades having a scallop cut-out profile. The scallop cut-out profile is formed by cutting-out a back side wall part of the blade between the suction surface side of a blade part and the pressure surface side of the adjacent blade.
Abstract: Providing a turbine rotor in which the rotational inertia of the turbine rotor can be reduced without changing the geometry of the blade part, whereas the turbine rotor is provided with the rear side surface so that the stress concentration appearing at the root part regarding the hub part on the rear surface side is constrained in order that the strength and the durability of the turbine rotor can be enhanced.
