Chat with the Experts: What are the Challenges of Developing Increasingly Efficient Gasoline Engines of the Future?
(Session Code: PFLCHAT)

Room 331 B/C  3:30 p.m.

Advances in automotive gasoline engine technology will continue to play a pivotal role in the reduction of greenhouse gases. A key enabler for improved efficiency is increased power density, but this is restrained by the limits of knock and pre-ignition. Experts will share their experience and thoughts on technologies that can be collectively combined to push beyond the current knock/pre-ignition ceiling. They will also examine how these technologies contribute to greater engine efficiency.

Moderators - Mazen Hammoud, Ford Motor Co.
Presenters - Thomas Grissom, BorgWarner Automotive; Marc Sens, IAV GmbH; Matti Vint, VALEO; Akram Zahdeh, GM; James Zizelman, Delphi Corp.
