Accelerating the Product Development to Drive ICE Efficiency Improvement

Focus areas for predictive simulation of advanced engines:

Couple state-of-the-art Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) and optical engine experiments to provide significantly enhanced quantitative information and understanding.
Spray modeling and experimentation in dense spray and nozzle internal flow regions, including physics like cavitation and flash boiling
• Spray Combustion Consortium (SCC)
logoThe Combustion Research Facility (CRF) is an internationally recognized center of excellence for combustion science and technology whose operations are supported by the DOE Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES).  The CRF is home to about 100 scientists, engineers, and technologists who conduct basic and applied research aimed at improving our nation’s ability to use and control

2011 Workshop to Identify Research Needs and Impacts in Predictive Simulation for Internal Combustion Engines (PreSICE) convened 63 U.S. leaders in the engine combustion field from industry, academia, and national laboratories to focus on two critical areas of advanced simulation.
