Update on engine combustion research at Sandia National Laboratories Keller, Jay ; Singh, Gurpreet

By: Keller, JayContributor(s): Singh, GurpreetPublication details: Warrendale, PA Society of Automotive Engineers, 2001; SAE technical paper 2001-01-2060, Description: 9 sSubject(s): Diesel engine | Combustion | Research project | Simulation | | Apparatus | USA | 911Online resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: The objectives of this paper are to describe the research efforts in diesel engine combustion at Sandia National Laboratories' Combustion Research Facility and to provide recent experimental results. We have four diesel engine experiments supported by the Department of Energy, Office of Heavy Vehicle Technologies: a onecylinder version of a Cummins heavy-duty engine, a diesel simulation facility, a one-cylinder Caterpillar engine to evaluate combustion of alternative fuels, and a homogeneous-charge, compression-ignition (HCCI) engine. Recent experimental results of diesel combustion research will be discussed and a description will be given of our HCCI experimental program and of our HCCI modeling work.
