Experimentally Validated DNS and LES Approaches for Fuel Injection, Mixing and Combustion of Dual-Fuel Engines (EDEM)

Economical, geopolitical and social trends arising from environmental concerns are precipitating legislative actions for the partial substitution of diesel by cleaner fuels. Natural gas/diesel dual-fuel engines offer a path toward meeting current and future emissions standards. Funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, EDEM will develop direct numerical simulation and large-eddy simulation techniques for fuel injection, mixing and combustion processes relevant to dual-fuel engines. The newly derived models will serve as input to the design of more efficient internal combustion engines.
