“Gas engine combustion fundamentals”

June 13, 2016 ETH Zurich, Switzerland, ML building, room E12

The Aerothermochemistry and Combustion systems laboratory is pleased to announce the first workshop on “Gas engine combustion fundamentals”. The event is held jointly in the framework of the Implementing Agreement for Energy Conservation and Emissions Reduction in Combustion of the International Energy Agency (IEA) gas engine collaborative task, the ERCOFTAC Special Interest Group on Reactive Flows and the Swiss Competence Centre for Energy Research.

The workshops seeks to address a broad variety of challenges pertaining to stoichiometric/lean burn natural gas mono-fuel engines and dual fuel configurations using (micro) pilot ignition for lean premixed charges or high-pressure direct gas injection in non-premixed mode. Specific topics of interest encompass ignition systems, early flame kernel growth, flame-wall interaction and chemical kinetics/knock for which experimental diagnostics and modelling efforts are discussed.

Sponsored jointly by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy Combustion Research programme and the Swiss Competence Centre for Energy Research Mobility, the workshop can be offered free of charge however registration is required (link below).
ERCOFTAC funding to support student participation is gratefully acknowledged: PhD candidates are requested to upload a ½ page description of their PhD research topic together with a publication list upon registration of which a selection of ten will be supported with € 200.
