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 performance challenge be achieve or must there be a compromise?

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.

Driven by the need for lower emissions, better fuel economy and improved drive quality, optimized powertrain calibrations are required for the many different vehicle configurations on today's roadways. While powertrain components such as the internal combustion engine, transmission, and hybrid electric powertrain are somewhat familiar to the automotive industry, the control theory, calibrations and system interactions between these components are a relatively unfamiliar aspect.

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.
