ME 377 Advanced Internal Combustion Engines

The course seeks to explain advanced aspects of modern engines.  Engine balance, in-cylinder flow, and advanced gas exchange systems are discussed, as well as downsizing and hybridization considerations.  Detailed consideration of emissions is given.  Lubrication is addressed and fuel aspects are presented with respect to decarbonization of transport and the importance of the CFR engine.  Alternative engine types now being developed are presented, such as the Wankel rotary and 2-stroke engines.  Case studies are given to provide context to topics being studied.
