Low-­Temperature Combustion Enables Cleaner, More Efficient Engines

  Combustion Research Facility lead author, Mark Musculus, along with Sandia researchers Paul Miles and Lyle Pickett, through their latest research paper, “Conceptual models for partially premixed low-temperature diesel combustion,” in Progress in Energy and Combustion Science hope to communicate the details of how LTC works to the broader engine research community. This research and [...]

Assessing the Economic Potential of Advanced Biofuels

Biofuels hold great promise for the future of transportation energy, but how near we are to that future is, at best, an educated guess with many variables at play. A study led by Scott Paap (Systems Research and Analysis Dept.), “Biochemical production of ethanol and fatty acid ethyl esters from switchgrass: A comparative analysis of environmental [...]

Fabrication of AMI Demonstration Blade Begun

The Advanced Manufacturing Initiative (AMI) is a multiple-year, 3-way collaboration among TPI Composites, Iowa State University, and Sandia National Laboratories. The goal of this collaboration is to improve the viability of U.S.-based wind turbine blade manufacturing through improvements in labor productivity and cycle time. As the AMI effort nears completion, the “capstone” effort is the [...]
