Understanding and optimizing the interactions between engines and fuels

Argonne’s Engine research focuses on understanding the interactions between fuels and engines in order to maximize the benefits available through optimization as well as to enable multi-fuel capability.

Argonne researchers apply their expertise in the areas of combustion chemistry, fuel spray characterization, combustion system design, controls, and in-cylinder sensing as well as emissions control. A team of experts spanning a range of disciplines collaborate in the co-development of innovative internal combustion engine concepts and alternative fuels. The laboratory’s state-of-the-art testing and simulation capabilities provide support for these efforts.
