Contents Notes
Collection of papers from the "Advances in Combustion" session of the 2001 SAE World Congress, held March 5-8 in Detroit, Michigan. Presents papers on progress made recently in the execution of the exothermic process of combustion in piston engines, including reports on the developments already made and on their research studies, as well as on the interpretation of engine performance associated with combustion and on the principles providing a background for technological advances in this field of engineering. Paper topics include: particularities of combustion in direct injection spark ignition engines; numerical modeling for auto-ignition and combustion processes of fuel sprays in a high-pressure environment; controlled combustion in an IC-engine with a fully variable valve train; engine control using a real-time combustion model; IC engines for 100 miles/gallon cars; hydrogen fueled engines in hybrid vehicles; use of dynamic valving to achieve residual-affected combustion; and influence of catalysis on combustion in a spark ignition engine.
