Extreme Fuel Ignition Characterization

Multi-Fuel Capable Hybrid Electric Propulsion (MCHEP) Area 1

Extreme Fuel Ignition Characterization: Perform research to understand the detailed relationships between any liquid fuel’s chemical and physical makeup and its ignition behavior.  This information will be used to build detailed ignition models which will help enable truly multi-fuel capable engine operation.  Collaboration opportunities include: a) advanced combustion diagnostics, b) fuel property characterization, c) detailed chemical modeling, and d) novel injection and spray breakup technologies.
