Today’s modern diesel engines are designed with efficiency and low emissions in mind. To achieve these objectives, fuel injection system pressures have moved up in excess of 2,000 BAR. These higher pressures drive the need for fuel cleanliness levels never seen before in order to “keep running and achieve more”, i.e. meet injector life and maintenance interval expectations. In order to achieve the levels of cleanliness now required, a two-step approach to filtration is needed. Onboard filtration alone will be challenged to meet the expected levels of efficiency and life due to limitations in dirt holding capacity and compromised performance in harsh on-engine environments. This presentation will explain why bulk fuel filtration, or filtering the fuel prior to being put into use on the equipment, should be an integral part of every operation’s contamination control strategy.

A review of the published literature on the ambient storage stability of B-X/ULSD blends will be presented. Then experimental results will be presented designed to test the hypothesis that the ambient storage stability of retail B-X/ULSD blends are dependent upon fuel dissolved oxygen concentration. Possible chemical mechanisms for the observed results will be proposed.

Internal Diesel Injector Deposits (IDIDs) can be formed from metal carboxylate soaps, artificial low-MW succinimides, and fuel degradation due to extreme conditions within FIE. Shell has used acoustic cavitation (sonication) to model the hydrodynamic cavitation aspect of fuel degradation to IDID. Shell has also studied the effect of nozzle fouling on the structural characteristics of high pressure diesel sprays into either a water reservoir or a pressurised constant volume chamber. In the water reservoir study, fouling increased the spray cone angle by 10-140%. Fouling particularly affected the early stages of spray evolution, with the cycle-to-cycle variability of the cone angle being 2-3x greater when an injector was fouled, along with transient radial bulges which might reduce the axial momentum and affect combustion performance. In contrast, at the end of injection ligament and droplet formation were not affected by fouling.

Improving vehicular fuel efficiency is of paramount importance to the global economy. Governmental regulations, climate change and associated health concerns, as well as the drive towards energy independence, have created a technical need to achieve greater fuel efficiency. While vehicle manufacturers are focusing efforts on improved combustion strategies, smaller displacement engines, weight reduction, low friction surfaces, etc., the research involved in developing fuel efficient engine oils has been less publicized.

Embedded hardware is everywhere you look today from your vehicle’s infotainment system to refrigerator to medical devices and everything else in-between. With so much exposure one would think that such devices are secure against attack; however, sadly for a large number of devices this is not the case. For proof, just look no further than your local news reports. They are full of reports on devices being hacked into. So, as engineers, how do we go about first identifying and mitigating (or capitalizing) the potential security vulnerabilities within these devices?

Public awareness regarding pollutants and their adverse health effects has created an urgent need for engineers to better understand the combustion process as well as the pollutants formed as by-products of that process. To effectively contribute to emission control strategies and design and develop emission control systems and components, a good understanding of the physical and mathematical principles of the combustion process is necessary. This seminar will bring issues related to combustion and emissions "down to earth," relying less on mathematical terms and more on physical explanations and analogies.

More stringent global requirements for emissions, safety, and fuel efficiency continue to apply increasing pressures on the automotive, powertrain, oil, and supplier industries. Traditional solutions have included vehicle down-sizing to reduce weight along with a variety of engine and drivetrain modifications aimed at improving combustion and efficiency. In addition, worldwide regulations have also been aimed at incentivizing alternative powertrain and vehicle technologies. However, as the design space for automotive, powertrain, fuels, and lubricants becomes even more refined and limited, there is a significant potential that compromises in consumer satisfaction may have to be considered in order to achieve the required regulatory targets unless technology breakthroughs are achieved.

Note: Last day of class ends at approximately 12:30 pm Recent advances in commercial vehicle equipment have increased the potential for incident-related data to be recorded surrounding a collision event. What some have called a "black box" is more properly referred to as a Heavy Vehicle Event Data Recorder (HVEDR) as defined by the SAE J2728 HVEDR Recommended Practice.
