Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engines stands unique for its efficiency and its less pollutant emitting nature.
Their topics include an asymmetrical solar still with various basin materials, a theoretical investigation of combustion with preformed vortex patterns, the computational analysis of an early direct injected homogeneous charge compression ignition engine with a turbocharger using bio-ethanol and diesel blends, optimizing operating parameters on the wear behavior of manganese phosphate coated die steel, and discussions about the thermodynamic entropy property and its existence in vehicle dynamics of automobiles for improving the mileage.
He refers to what they are working on as an "ultra-efficient internal combustion engine." Their approach is not homogeneous charge compression ignition (FICC1), nor is it reactively controlled compression ignition (RCCI).
To ensure the best performance of the vehicle, Mazda has develA[degrees]oped an ideal engine configuration A[degrees] the Homogenous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engine, which offers the combined advantages of both gasoline and diesel engines, to pursue ideal combustion.
He covers the outlook for energy and transport fuels; the manufacture, composition, and properties of practical fuels for internal combustion engines; deposits in internal combustion engines; fuel effects on auto-ignition in premixed systems--knock in spark ignition engines and combustion in homogeneous charge compression ignition engines; pre-ignition and super-knock in turbocharged spark ignition engines; fuel effects on compression ignition combustion--whether low-octane gasoline is the best fuel for advanced diesel engines; and implications for future transport fuels.
Their findings showed that this method of achieving partially premixed charge compression ignition (PCCI) yielded the potential for reduced N[O.sub.X] and PM emissions, and enhanced efficiency.
