Higher Efficiency, Reduced Emissions, Increased Reliability and Lifetime, Engines for Ships (HERCULES-C)

This EU project is conducted in a work-package collaboration with MAN Turbo and Diesel in Copenhagen, Denmark. To support their model developments, we have developed an optically transparent injector tip with the same interior passages as a commercial unit. It is fed by fuel from a modified Scania XPI injector body. The injector mounts inside the Chalmers spray vessel so that we can reproduce the density of air inside the big MAN engines. Interior flows will be studied with high-speed, long distance microscopic shadowgraphy and they will be correlated with breakup using ballistic imaging. The project includes 25 partners.
