Dr. Gautam Kalghatgi from Saudi Aramco presented a seminar titled 'Knock intensity, superknock and preignition in SI engines'on August 23, 2016. Knock is an abnormal combustion phenomenon which limits the efficiency of spark ignition (SI) engines. It is caused by autoignition of the fuel/air mixture in hot spots in the “end-gas” ahead of the advancing flame front which depends on the evolution of pressure (P) and temperature (T) during the cycle and on the fuel anti-knock quality.

February 10, 2013 

On February 10, 2013, the ‘Fuel Combustion for Next Generation Engines' program (FUELCOM), a collaborative project between CCRC and Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company was inaugurated. Fuels used today will be unsuitable for the engines of the future; pollution mitigation and a drive for higher efficiency will demand fuel combustion in increasingly extreme conditions.
