  1. 1. Modeling of Spark to Ignition Transition in Gas Mixtures

    Author : Muhammad Akram; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Spark ignition; Spark discharge; Fluid dynamics; Physics; Plasma dynamics.; Fysik; Fysicumarkivet A:1996:Akram;

    Abstract : This thesis pertains to the models for studying sparking in chemically inert gases. The models are derived from the basic principles and framework in continuum mechanics. The processes taking place in a spark to flame transition can be segregated into physical and chemical processes. This study is focused on physical processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spark Assisted Compression Ignition, SACI

    Author : Håkan Persson; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flame propagation; PLIF; LDV; chemiluminescence imaging; residuals; negative valve overlap; low temperature combustion; SACI; spark assistance; HCCI; turbulence; charge stratification; cycle to cycle;

    Abstract : The strong focus on decreasing carbon dioxide emissions due to limited natural resources of fossil fuel as well as alarming climate changes drives the research and development of our prime mover, the combustion engine, faster then ever. The minimum requirement is a power source with increased efficiency while emitting ultra low levels of hazardous local and regional emissions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental Studies of Advanced Ignition Systems for Lean Burn Natural Gas Engines

    Author : Jessica Dahlström; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ignition system; spark energy; internal combustion engine; engine; spark ignition; natural gas;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges for the transport sector today is reducing its environmental impact. This applies especially to the emission aspects, much due to increasingly stringent emissions legislations. READ MORE
