Technical Session Schedule

Tuesday, April 8

SI Combustion Ignition
(Session Code: PFL215)

Room 413 A  3:00 p.m.

This session focuses on the SI combustion ignition process and advanced ignition systems. 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 - William P. Attard; Thomas Edward Briggs, Southwest Research Institute; Richard S. Davis, General Motors Co.
Chairpersons - Thomas Edward Briggs, Southwest Research Institute; William P. Attard
