 Workpackage 2: Advanced Combustion Concepts
 

AIM: to conduct specialised experiments allowing development of advanced models of key in-cylinder processes, to be used for investigating in depth new combustion concepts.

Objectives:

  • Application of 3-D simulation tools to marine engine combustion; extension and adaptation of existing sub-models as well as development of new models.
  • Development of advanced test facilities for fundamental experimental investigation of in-cylinder phenomena.
  • Validation of models against experimental data.

The Workpackage consists of two Tasks:

Task 2.1: Combustion process simulation

Task 2.2: Emission formation simulation
