Task 1.1: Mechanics of engine with extreme design parameters
This task aims to investigate the mechanics of engines with extreme design parameters. The optimum design parameters for combustion and reduced friction will be investigated. Design of new key components for the extreme parameter engine will be performed. Novel components for fuel injection and valve operation will be manufactured. Prototype tests of the new systems will be performed onboard an experimental extreme parameter engine.
