Argonne pushing boundaries of computing in engine simulationsAugust 24, 2015

Researchers at Argonne will be testing the limits of computing horsepower this year with a new simulation project from the Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative that will harness 60 million computer core hours to dispel uncertainties and pave the way to more effective engine simulations.

Argonne works with marine industry on new fuelJuly 30, 2015

Argonne has collaborated with Bombardier Recreational Products and the National Marine Manufacturers Association to demonstrate the effectiveness of a fuel blend with 16 percent butane. This blend would incorporate more biofuels into marine fuel without the issues caused by increasing levels of ethanol, which can cause difficulties in marine engines at high concentrations.

Argonne working with Ford and FCA US to study dual-fuel vehiclesJuly 9, 2015

It’s not as challenging as mixing oil and water, but scientists at Argonne are partnering with industry to study a tricky fuel mixing problem that could lead to more efficient engines.
