Internal Combustion Engine is facing the greatest challenge in all its history, having to comply with sustainability requirements aimed at improving fuel economic efficiency, decreasing the greenhouse gases emissions while achieving the increasingly stringent emission regulations. For all possible approaches, combustion technology is the most effective way to meet this challenge. This presentation reviews the progress of the new combustion technology with high efficiency and low emission. Then, a new combustion technology which is reactivity and inhomogeneity controlled compression ignition (R&ICCI) is proposed.

Joo Michael Michael Joo


The combustion concept generally referred to as "HEDGE" involves using a high energy ignition system to promote EGR tolerance in gasoline engines. By increasing the EGR tolerance of the engine, the HEDGE concept reduces knock and allows engine operation at high specific power levels and high compression ratios. In addition, some benefits from an improvement in the ratio of specific heats and a reduction in pumping and heat losses due to the dilution effect are realized.

HEDGE is also the name of a consortium that SwRI has managed investigating on the combustion concept since 2004. In the consortium, various challenges associated with the combustion concept had been identified and addressed. In this presentation, the details of the HEDGE concept, the major challenges, the way to overcome the challenges, the highlights of the achievement and the future research direction will be discussed.

The formation of urea deposit in the SCR system leads the reduction of NOx conversion efficiency and catalyst lifetime. In order to investigate the formation of urea deposit at exhaust inner pipe, the weight of urea deposit and NH3 which are decomposition products of urea were measured and analyzed under different conditions. CFD model of urea spray impingement coupled with spray injection, droplet atomization, evaporation and gas flow was established for airless injection system and validated by experiments. The experimental and numerical results are valuable for reduction of urea deposit, increase of NOx conversation efficiency and extension of catalyst lifetime.
