Four CRF Papers Presented at the International Conference on Hydrogen Safety

CRF researchers presented four papers at the 5th International Conference on Hydrogen Safety, held September 9–11 in Brussels, Belgium. ICHS 2013 focused on progress in safety of hydrogen technologies and infrastructure, as crucial/essential means to enable the transition to a zero carbon energy system. The conference was hosted by the Joint Research Centre (Institute for […]

Sandia Maps Multiple Paths to Cleaner, Low-Temp Diesels

A few years ago, the automotive and engine industries presented researchers at Sandia National Laboratories with a mystery. Notably, the companies did so separately, each approaching their national-lab research partners at the Combustion Research Facility (CRF) in Livermore, California, with in-house lab engine test results that none of their highly experienced experts had yet encountered. […]

Two CRF Papers Named “Distinguished” for 34th International Symposium on Combustion

Two papers by CRF researchers have been named distinguished papers for the 34th International Symposium on Combustion held from July 29–August 3, 2012, in Warsaw, Poland. “Synchrotron photoionization measurements of fundamental autoignition reactions: Product formation in low-temperature isobutane oxidation” by Arkke Eskola, Oliver Welz, John Savee, David Osborn, and Craig Taatjes (all in Sandia’s Combustion […]

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 […]
