Combustion of liquid fuel spray




Combustion simulator for liquid spray CVB1

Aim and experimental setup
There is increasing demand for better understanding of spray ignition and combustion
mechanisms since future clean engines will involve various types of direct-injection
combustion and a vast range of injection and intake-charge conditions.
Paying attention to the relation between fuel-air mixing and combustion,
we are carrying out the studies using a constant volume vessel equipped
with an electrically-controlled high-pressure injection system:
1. Study on ignition mechanism in a fuel spray paying attention to fuel-air mixing
2. Fundamental study on ignition and heat release control in direct-injection PCCI
3. Spray ignition model including a stochastic mixing model and a reduced chemical kinetics
