ME54000 - Internal Combustion EnginesSpring 2014 Days/Time:
MWF / 4:30-5:20 pmCredit Hours:
To study in-cylinder processes in internal combustion engines and how they affect engine performance. The processes discussed will be applicable to spark-ignition (SI), direct-injection spark-ignition (DISI), diesel, advanced compression-ignition, and natural gas engines. The course will discuss how in-cylinder fluid flow, turbulence, liquid atomization, sprays, combustion, and pollutant formation affect engine performance. The modeling of these processes in internal combustion engines will be discussed. The course will also cover alternative fuels and after-treatment devices.Description:
Spark-ignition and compression-ignition engine processes. Study of the fundamentals of turbulence, boundary layers, liquid atomization, sprays, combustion, and pollutant formation as applied to the internal combustion engines. Engine after treatment.
