|Abstract||Turbulent flowfield in IC engines. Ignition, premixed flame propagation, knock in homogeneous charge, external ignition engines (otto). Compression-ignition diesel engines, incl. mixture formation and HCCI concepts. Direct ignition. Pollutant formation mechanism (NOx, particulates, unburned hydrocarbons) and their minimization. Catalytic exhaust aftertreatment methods for all pollutant categories.|
|Objective||The students get a further insight in the internal combustion engine by means of the topics mentioned in the abstract. This knowledge is applied in several calculation exercises and lab exercises at the engine test bench. The students additionally get an introduction in exhaust gas aftertreatment systems.|
|Lecture notes||Handouts are in German and English.|
|Literature||J.B. Heywood, Internal Combustion Engine Fundamentals, McGraw-Hill Mechanical Engineering|
|Prerequisites / Notice||This course is a natural extension of the course 'IC-Engines and Propulsion Systems I' (151-0251-00L). The content of that lecture is assumed known.|
Basic knowledge of thermodynamics and combustion is required.
It is beneficial to have attended the course 'Combustion and Reactive Processes in Energy and Materials Technology' (151-0293-00L).
