SAE 2014 International Powertrain, Fuels & Lubricants Meeting

Technical Session Schedule

Monday, October 20

Dilute SI Combustion (Stratified Charge, EGR)
(Session Code: FFL216)

Room Executive Room 2  13:30

This session focuses on the dilute SI combustion processes including lean, stratified, and EGR operation. Papers cover both 4-stroke and 2-stroke engines characterized by 1) ignition by an external energy source that serves to control combustion phasing, and 2) a combustion rate that is limited by flame propagation.

Organizers - John O. Waldman, General Motors; Thomas Wallner, Argonne National Laboratory
Chairpersons - John Waldman, General Motors
