NEW! Recent Advances in Alternative Fuels Combustion

10 January 2018 
1800-2000 hrs.

The tremendous expansion of the aviation demand combined with the energy crisis and the stringent environmental pollution regulations has been the challenge and the driving force for the alternative fuels research. Potential drop-in alternative fuels offer the opportunity to provide immediate benefits.

Majority of the studies available in public domain deals with just few aspects of alternative fuel research. In this training session we will present a review of current alternative fuels research followed with a wide range of topics that are important for alternative fuels research. The topics would include PM and gaseous emissions, impact of different aromatic species on PM and seal swell, fuel system compatibility issues, combustion instability and noise issues followed with impact on Lean Blowout Limits. Overall aim of the training would be to give overall prospective of alternative fuels research and issues. More Details
