We invite the contribution of research and review articles for this special issue on advanced engine combustion in honour of Prof. Rolf D. Reitz’s retirement.
Prof. Reitz will retire this summer after a brilliant academic career. Prof. Reitz established the foundation of modern engine simulation and optimisation using CFD, from numerical algorithms and physical models to optimisation methods.
Many optimised combustion strategies obtained from simulation have been successfully applied to engine operation; for instance, multiple injection techniques, adaptive injection strategies and the reactivity-controlled compression ignition (RCCI) concept.
The aim of this special issue is to produce a research volume on the theory, modelling, simulation, optimisation and application of advanced engine combustion that is linked to, related to or inspired by the work of Prof. Reitz.
Potential topics that might be covered in this special issue include the current research activities of the contributing authors in the field of internal combustion engine research. Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- In-cylinder flow
- Mixture distribution
- Exhaust emissions
- Combustion engine performance
- Fuel injection systems
- Fuel spray technology
- Fuels and their influence on engine performance
- Mathematical modelling of intake/exhaust processes
- After-treatment technology
- Powertrain simulation
- Conventional and alternative fuels
