Advanced Combustion Technologies

  • Engine emissions predictions based on combustion models

    Phenomenological high frequency to mean value models, and an introduction to Correlated mean value models.

  • High-speed colour combustion imaging

    The aim is to develop optical diagnostics to investigate the impact of evaporating fuel films in combustion as a source of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (possible particle precursors) (PAH) and soot.

    High-speed colour combustion-imaging visualizes the spray and fuel films, illuminated by a green LED, the flame front by chemiluminescence, and soot by natural incandescence. To read more on the results of Laser Induced Fluouresence (LIF) based fuel-film imaging, click here.
