This session is looking for abstracts that are focused around what effect designing a vehicle that optimizes fuel economy with minimum environmental impact has on creating an optimized braking system efficiency. Can this be done or does something have to give?

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.

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.

Turbocharging is already a key part of heavy duty diesel engine technology. However, the need to meet emissions regulations is rapidly driving the use of turbo diesel and turbo gasoline engines for passenger vehicles. Turbocharged diesel engines improve the fuel economy of baseline gasoline engine powered passenger vehicles by 30-50%. Turbocharging is critical for diesel engine performance and for emissions control through a well designed exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. In gasoline engines, turbocharging enables downsizing which improves fuel economy by 5-20%.

The focus of this session is the performance of integrated vehicle systems and the influence of driving styles and drive cycles on fuel consumption/economy. This will include how integration of vehicle components such as the powertrain, parasitics, accessories, mass elements, aerodynamics, tires, brakes, and hubs affect the overall vehicle energy and energy conversion efficiency.

The blended gasoline and diesel fuel (G80D20) with low octane number and high volatility is tested on a single cylinder diesel engine under different operating conditions to compare the combustion and emission characteristics of Partially Premixed Compression Ignition (PPCI) and Multiple Premixed Compression Ignition (MPCI) modes in order to optimize the combustion controlling strategies. The test results show that PPCI and MPCI modes can be realized using the low octane fuel in a wide operating range of the engine. At the low loads in the whole speed, the single injection PPCI is the best choice to obtain the high efficiency and low emissions of the engine. At medium and high loads with medium and high speeds, the MPCI is the best. The multi-injection PPCI is mostly suitable for the high loads with high speeds.
