As fuel consumption targets and emissions regulations become more stringent, additional technologies and strategies to meet these goals are needed. One promising approach is through the use of Gasoline Compression Ignition (GCI). In GCI, gasoline is direct injected into the combustion chamber and auto-ignites after a considerable amount of premixing has occurred. Several researchers have shown the potential for very high efficiency (due to reduced heat transfer) and ultra-low emissions. However, ignition characteristics at a variety of engine speeds and loads are still being explored. This presentation will cover the use of EGR, boost, injection pressure, injection timing and fuel properties to explore GCI ignition characteristics and engine performance.

Gasoline compression ignition (GCI) combustion has become of increasing interest in recent years due to the potential for very high thermal efficiencies with significant reductions in many criteria pollutants. This interest is driven by significant advances in enabling technologies such as fuel injection systems, turbomachinery, valve actuation, sensors, and onboard computers. The combination of these technologies and others has led to new real-time control opportunities which have led to GCI combustion being potentially viable for production applications. GCI combustion is not a new concept but has evolved over the past several decades. Earlier GCI research was focused primarily on homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) combustion. More recent years have seen increasing interest in a continuous range of GCI combustion modes spanning fully homogeneous HCCI to partial fuel stratification modes to full stratification modes which are diesel-like in execution.

The transportation industry, including motor vehicles, aircraft, rail, marine, commercial, off-road and defense vehicles, as well as infrastructures, energy sectors, raw materials, manufacturing, health and food industries all experience significant issues with corrosion which results in billions of dollars of loss each year. Corrosion education and prevention is essential to improve and increase the service life of parts and components which may have a significant impact on the economy of various industries and nations.

Side impact crashes account for approximately twenty-six percent of all motor vehicle fatal crashes, second only to frontal crashes, according to a report by the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA). While car companies and suppliers continue to develop new technologies that make vehicles safer, NHTSA rolled out updated safety regulations (FMVSS 214) based on new research studies, making vehicle safety design more and more complex. This seminar is designed to familiarize participants with the engineering principles behind vehicle and restraint designs for occupant safety.
