Task 2.2: Experimental and Numerical Combustion Analysis
 

Objectives:

  • 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.
