Diesel Engine Combustion and Emissions

CoEx Poster

The Group's current research activities on diesel engine combustion and emissions have at their heart a major collaborative research program with Jaguar Land Rover, the University of Oxford/Jaguar Land Rover "Centre of Excellence for Compression Ignition Engine Combustion Research (click on image for full size version).

The Centre supports both experimental and numerical research with a strong focus on enabling improvements in efficiency and emissions on next generation engines by extending the scientific knowledge. Our engine test facility, developed in partnership with Jaguar Land Rover, is state-of-the-art. Currently, we run experiments on a very highly instrumented, single-cylinder version of the JLR AJ200D "Ingenium" engine in a development specification. Measurements within the Centre are performed to exacting standards and much of our research focuses on the development of new or improved measurement techniques such that we are able to provide unique data sets for model development and validation.

Much of the work that we perform in the Centre is necessarily confidential; however, details of some of the individual DPhil projects being run in the Centre can be found by clicking on the individual graduate student links as they become available below.
