Description New approaches to modelling autoignition processes in internal combustion engines have been developed
Exploitation Route The findings of the project allowed the research community to extend the theoretical tools used for the analysis of autoignition processes in internal combustion engines. The same tools could be used for the analysis of other droplet heating and evaporation, beyond the applications in internal combustion engines.
Sectors Education,Energy,Transport

Description The project was focused on the development of new advanced technique for the analysis of autoignition in HCCI engines. The results of this project are not expected to have direct impact beyond academic community. However, indirect impact of this project can be anticipated. This impact could be based on the development of more accurate models for autoignition, leading to more accurate models of combustion processes in internal combustion engines. It is very difficult to quantify this impact.
