Task 2.1: Combustion process modelling and Development
 

Objectives:

  • To investigate with CFD and propose combustion concepts that offer improved trade-offs between fuel consumption and emissions, compared to today's marine engines.
  • To acquire relevant and valid reference data to use as model input as well as model validation.
  • To develop and/or adapt CFD tools and simulation methods used, to the extent required to make them useful for simulating marine engine combustion processes.
