SAE 2014 International Powertrain, Fuels & Lubricants Meeting

Technical Session Schedule

Monday, October 20

Spark Assisted Compression Ignition, SACI
(Session Code: FFL240)

Room Hall 8B  10:30

Mixed modes with both flame propagation and slow auto ignition. Distinct from SI knock: autoignition is desired and will not ruin the engine. Papers describing experiments and test data, simulation results focused on applications, fuel/additive effects, and SACI mode change are invited and will be placed in appropriate sub-sessions. Papers with an emphasis on the modeling aspects of combustion are encouraged to be submitted into PFL 110 or PFL120 modeling sessions.

Organizers - Brian C. Kaul, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Sotirios Mamalis, Stony Brook Univ.
Chairpersons - Brian C. Kaul, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
