Combustion and Flow Diagnostics

(Part 3 of 3)

This session focuses on diagnostics and data processing

techniques aimed at clarifying the flow, ignition, combustion and

emission behavior in both spark and compression ignition engines.

Examples of papers included are in-cylinder optical measurements

of temperature and composition, optical measurements of

combustion chamber surfaces using thermographic phosphors,

and the development and application of new methods for cycleresolved

analysis of NOx and soot emissions.

Multi-Dimensional Engine Modeling (Part

6 of 6)

Multi-dimensional engine modeling has gradually established

itself in the engineering community as a means to gain a deeper

understanding of processes related to turbulent, transient,

chemically reacting, two-phase flows. The spectrum of papers

contained in the session reflect the truly multidisciplinary nature

of the field covering areas such as chemical kinetics, combustion

and spray modeling, turbulence, mesh generation, and approaches

targeting improved computational efficiency.
