Project Description

Given the urgent nature of fuel-­‐economy standards and the long development time required coproduce new engines operating in advanced combustion modes, automotive manufacturers need to understand and control the limiting behavior caused by cyclic variations in combustion. Advanced simulation techniques of dilute combustion instabilities in internal combustion engines offer one means to accelerate the implementation of new engines designed to meet fuel-­ economy goals. This project implements a novel methodology for efficient simulation of unstable combustion behavior in dilute internal combustion engine operation.
