Combustion and Emissions for Engineers

Public awareness regarding pollutants and their adverse health effects has created an urgent need for engineers to better understand the combustion process as well as the pollutants formed as by-products of that process. To effectively contribute to emission control strategies and design and develop emission control systems and components, a good understanding of the physical and mathematical principles of the combustion process is necessary. This seminar will bring issues related to combustion and emissions "down to earth," relying less on mathematical terms and more on physical explanations and analogies.

Emissions-Related OBD Systems A Design Overview

On-board diagnostics, required by governmental regulations, provide a means for reducing harmful pollutants into the environment. Since being mandated in 1996, the regulations have continued to evolve and require engineers to design systems that meet strict guidelines. This one day seminar is designed to provide an overview of the fundamental design objectives and the features needed to achieve those objectives for generic on-board diagnostics. The basic structure of an on-board diagnostic will be described along with the system definitions needed for successful implementation.

Evaporative and Refueling Emission Control

All gasoline powered vehicles and equipment create exhaust and evaporative and refueling emissions. Unlike exhaust emissions, which occur only when the engine is operating, evaporative emissions (evap emissions) occur all the time. Controlling evap emissions to PZEV levels is as challenging as controlling exhaust emissions. It becomes even more important in the case of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and extended range electric vehicles (EREV) which generate evaporative fuel vapors, but have no place to burn/consume the vapors when the engine does not operate for extended periods of time.

Automotive Heat Transfer

Heat transfer affects the performance, emissions and durability of the engine as well as the design, packaging, material choice and fatigue life of vehicle components. This course covers the broad range of heat transfer considerations that arise during the design and development of the engine and the vehicle with a primary focus on computational models and experimental validation covering the flow of heat from its origin in the engine cylinders and its transfer via multiple paths through engine components.

Advanced Diesel Particulate Filtration Systems

As diesel emissions regulations have become more and more stringent, diesel particulate filters (DPF) have become possibly the most important and complex diesel aftertreatment device. This seminar covers many DPF-related topics using fundamentals from various branches of applied sciences such as porous media, filtration and materials sciences and will provide the student with both a theoretical as well as an applications-oriented approach to enhance the design and reliability of aftertreatment platforms.

Fuel Systems Material Selection and Compatibility with Alternative Fuels

This course will introduce the participants to the factors governing fuel-material compatibility and methods to predict and empirically determine compatibility for new alternative fuel chemistries. By understanding the mechanisms and factors associated with chemically-induced degradation, participants will be able to assess the impact of fuel chemistry to infrastructure components, including those associated with vehicle fuel systems. This course is unique in that it looks at compatibility from a fuel chemistry perspective, especially new fuel types such as alcohols and other biofuels.

Exhaust Flow Performance and Pressure Drop of Exhaust Components and Systems

Designing more efficient and robust emission control components and exhaust systems results in more efficient performance, reduced backpressure and fuel penalty, and higher conversion efficiency. This course will help you to understand the motion of exhaust flow in both gasoline and diesel emission control components including flow-through and wall-flow devices such as catalytic converters, NOx adsorbers, diesel oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters as well as flow through the overall exhaust system.

Designing On-Board Diagnostics for Light and Medium Duty Emissions Control Systems

On-board diagnosis of engine and transmission systems has been mandated by government regulation for light and medium vehicles since the 1996 model year. The regulations specify many of the detailed features that on-board diagnostics must exhibit. In addition, the penalties for not meeting the requirements or providing in-field remedies can be very expensive. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of how and why OBD systems function and the technical features that a diagnostic should have in order to ensure compliant and successful implementation.

Hydrocarbon Adsorber Test Procedure

2010-09-01
WIP
J2952
This SAE Recommended Practice describes several procedures to test and measure the performance of a Hydrocarbon Adsorber device located in a vehicle air induction system and attempts to simulate various loading and purging cycles it could experience. The Hydrocarbon Adsorber device is used to adsorb the small amount of gasoline that is volatized in the air induction manifold after the vehicle engine is turned off. This gasoline vapor can travel through the air induction system and escape to the atmosphere, impacting the total allowable vehicle evaporative emissions level set by the EPA and California ARB. When the vehicle is restarted, the Hydrocarbon Adsorber device is purged of hydrocarbons with the fresh air flow and is designed to perform as life of the vehicle emission device as set by the EPA.

Measurement of Tire/Pavement Noise Using Sound Intensity

2009-11-04
WIP
J2920
This standard specifies an engineering method for measuring acoustic power per unit area at points near the tire/pavement interface. The measurement quantifies the acoustic radiated sound intensity from the tire/pavement interface. This standard may be used to measure the sound intensity of varying tires and/or surfaces, over various operating conditions of the tire, or changes in surface characteristics.
