|Liquid Atomization, Sprays, and Fuel Injection|
|I.D. #||98019||Duration||3 Days|
| Liquid fuel atomization and spray formation is the heart of the majority of stationary and mobile power generation machines that we rely on. This seminar focuses on the process of liquid atomization and spray formation and how it relates to fuel injection systems and emission of pollutants in modern engines.
The seminar begins with background coverage of terminology, the purposes of liquid atomization and spray formation, and different designs of atomizers and nozzles employed in various industries. The focus is then directed to gasoline and diesel fuel injections, injector designs, and performance requirements for optimum engine operation with lowest possible emission of harmful pollutants.
Based on the idea that knowledge of technical practices and advances in one area (i.e. diesel fuel injection) is beneficial to engineers in other areas (gasoline direct injection, rocket engines), this seminar takes an interdisciplinary approach. Attendees will understand the technology and logic behind different injector designs, and gain the knowledge to judge, adapt and transfer technology advances from one discipline to another.

|Who Should Attend|
| Automotive and aerospace engineers, technical and project managers, researchers and academicians will benefit by attending this seminar. Automotive engineers working on the design of combustion engine components, reduction of harmful pollutants emissions, software development and application for modeling of thermal-fluid, combustions and emissions and engineers and managers directly involved in fuel injection systems will also benefit. Aerospace engineers involved in the design of gas turbine or rocket engines' combustion chambers will benefit as well.
