Task 2.2: Experimental and Numerical Combustion Analysis
Development of prototype cylinder covers having a large number of optical access points ("transparent" covers) for two and four stroke experimental engines, enabling optical investigation of all points of interest inside the combustion chamber.
Selection and development of advanced instrumentation for illumination and visualization of the in-cylinder phenomena, including fuel spray and flame visualization, velocity and temperature field measurement as well as transient emissions measurements.
Development of numerical simulation codes for novel combustion concepts and emissions formation modelling. Modelling will be extended and validated using input and insight from the optical in-cylinder investigations.
