IEA / ERCOFTAC joint workshop on
“Gas engine combustion fundamentals”
June 13, 2016 at ETH Zurich
With the first workshop on “Gas engine combustion fundamentals”, the Aerothermochemistry and Combustion Systems Laboratory of ETH seeks to establish a platform for expert discussion relating to fundamental combustion physics of gaseous fuels in internal combustion engines. Systems of interest comprise stoichiometric/lean burn natural gas single-fuel engines as well as dual fuel configurations with (micro) pilot ignition of lean premixed charges or high-pressure direct gas injection with mixing-controlled fuel conversion. Specific topics of this first workshop encompass ignition systems, early flame kernel growth, flame-wall interaction and chemical kinetics/knock.
The event is held jointly in the framework of the Implementing Agreement for Energy Conservation and Emissions Reduction in Combustion of the International Energy Agency(IEA), the ERCOFTAC Special Interest Group on Reactive Flows, the Combustion Research Programme of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy and the Swiss Competence Centre for Energy Research Mobility.
