Characterizing fuel reactivity in advanced internal combustion engines
MetadataShow full item record
The urgent need to increase efficiency and reduce exhaust emissions from internal combustion engines has resulted in an increased interest in alternative combustion modes. Premixed or partially premixed compression ignition modes, such as homogeneous-charge compression ignition (HCCI), reactivity-controlled compression ignition (RCCI) and multi-zone stratified compression ignition (MSCI) have been a particular focus because of their potential to deliver enhanced fuel efficiency and meet exhaust emissions mandates without the addition of costly after-treatment technologies. For HCCI and other ...
