1. The effects of long chain alcohol blends on engine performance and spray characteristics in CI engines
Sammanfattning : Replacing fossil fuels with alternatives derived from renewable sources is one way of meeting society’s increasing need for mobility while also significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles with internal combustion engines. To facilitate such a replacement, this thesis presents optical spray studies and engine experiments conducted to evaluate the potential of blends of biomass-derived alcohols and vegetable oils to serve as drop-in fuels for compression ignition engines.

Sammanfattning : This thesis investigated the modeling and control problems in the context of the flex-fuel compression-ignition (CI) engine and fuel cell, which shows great potential in the transition from fossil fuel to renewable energy sources.The modeling parts included the flex-fuel engine combustion process and intake system, and the system scale fuel cell model.

Sammanfattning : Laws concerning emissions from heavy duty (HD) internal combustion engines are becoming increasingly stringent. New engine technologies are needed to satisfy these new requirements and to reduce fossil fuel dependency. LÄS MER
4. Interpretation of gamma-ray burst X-ray and optical afterglow emission : From the central engine to the circumburst interaction
Sammanfattning : Gamma-ray bursts are the largest electromagnetic explosions known to happen in the Universe and are associated with the collapse of stellar progenitors into blackholes. After an energetic prompt emission phase, lasting typically less than a minute and emitted in the gamma-rays, a long-lived afterglow phase starts. LÄS MER
5. Characterization of the Combustion of Light Alcohols in CI Engines : Performance, Combustion Characteristics and Emissions
Sammanfattning : Alternative fuels for combustion engines are becoming increasingly popular as society is pushing to phase out fossil energy to reduce CO2 emissions. The compression ignition (CI) engine has a high overall efficiency which makes it a valuable option for the transport fleet, despite the well known NOx and soot pollutants it emits. LÄS MER
