RCCI Combustion
(Session Code: PFL262)

Room 414 A/B  1:00 p.m.

Mixed mode using more than one fuel not fully mixed before combustion. Most often with auto ignition of spray injected late. Papers describing experiments and test data, simulation results focused on applications, fuel/additive effects, and RCCI (Reactivity-Controlled Compression Ignition) 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 PFL110 or PFL120 modeling sessions.

Organizers - Scott Curran, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Sage Kokjohn, University Of Wisconsin Madison; William F. Northrop, Univ. of Minnesota-Twin Cities
Chairpersons - Scott Curran, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
