Fuel/Additive Effects on SI Combustion Processes
(Session Code: PFL214)

Room 413 A  8:00 a.m.

This session focuses on the impact of conventional and alternative fuels as well as fuel additives on the operation, performance and emissions of SI engines. Papers focus on the impact of bio-derived fuels (ethanol, butanol and others) on engine design and performance as well as gasoline properties and additives, and their impact.

Organizers - Elana Chapman, Richard S. Davis, John O. Waldman, General Motors Co.
Chairpersons - John O. Waldman, Elana Chapman, General Motors Co.
