Research Interests

Conventionally Cooperative Fuel Research (CFR) Engine is used to understand auto-ignition of fuels in Spark Ignition Combustion mode. Using the modified inlet air/fuel system, advanced combustion concepts such as Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) was studied in the CFR engine. More specifically, ethanol/methanol/toluene blending with base fuels was investigated.
