Short-Term Course On Advanced Course on Engine Combustion, Diagnostics, Emissions Control and Emerging Fuels 2018

Event Description

Current automobile technology has matured significantly over the past few years. Engine technologies have come across a significant change to improve the efficiency and cost. At the same time, the world is also confronted with the twin crises of fossil fuel depletion and environmental degradation. Indiscriminate extraction and lavish consumption of fossil fuels have led to a reduction in underground-based carbon resources. This has propelled the development of advanced engine technologies, which promise a harmonious correlation with sustainable development, energy conservation, management, efficiency and environmental preservation. With increasing environmental awareness worldwide, stringent regulations for fuel consumption, and exhaust emissions, including those for PM (Particulate Matter) and NOx are evolving. Under these circumstances, diesel engines would continue to be attractive because of their low fuel consumption and high power output however they have to emerge as clean primary power sources.

This course focuses on various advanced engine technologies, diagnostics and modelling tools developed recently in the automobile industry. The emphasis is on providing the participant an up-to date knowledge of the advances in these areas.

  1. Gasoline direct injection technology
  2. Laser diagnostics for fuel sprays and droplet size distribution
  3. Single Cylinder Optical Research Engine (SCORE) as engine development tool
  4. Particle imaging velocimetry for engine combustion chamber flow diagnostics
  5. NOx formation mechanisms ? Particulate formation mechanisms ? Engine exhaust particle characterization
  6. ?Instruments for particle size measurement ? Ultra fine and nanoparticle formation 

Fuel property influence on emissions ? Diesel oxidation catalysts ? Diesel particulate filters, Partial flow filters ? Particulate and NOx control using exhaust after-treatment ? 1-D modeling of engines, fuel injection systems, and engine cooling system ? New and Emerging fuels ? Challenges of Emerging fuels such as Methanol ? Emerging gaseous fuels The course will be taught by experts from academia and Industry. Some of the potential faculties are: ? Prof. Avinash Kumar Agarwal, IIT Kanpur ? Prof. Tarun Gupta, IIT Kanpur ? Dr. Anirudh Gautam, RDSO Lucknow ? Dr. Nitin Labhsetwar, NEERI Nagpur ? Experts from Automotive Industry There will be three lectures every day of 90 minutes each (five days; 3-7th August) and this will be followed by lab experiment demonstration session of two hours each day (three days). There will be a book exhibition related to engine technologies. The last day of the course i.e. 7th August (Tuesday) will be for the field visit to Engine Development Directorate, RDSO Lucknow, Ministry of Railways (Not compulsory) to observe large bore engine research facility of Indian Railways. The Continuing Education Cell of Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur conducts courses in Engineering and Science for the benefit of the faculty of engineering colleges in the country under Quality Improvement Program of All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE). Research scientists working in DRDO, CSIR laboratories, automotive industries and other practicing engineers also participate on a payment basis and benefit from this exercise.
