ECN 3rd Workshop Proceedings

Engine Combustion Network 3rd Workshop, ECN3

Hosted by the University of Michigan ME Department
Ann Arbor, Michigan, 4-5 April 2014, before the SAE World Congress

Workshop summary

Over 120 participants attended the workshop, and 40 more accessed the live presentations via webcast. Organizers gathered experimental and modeling results prior to the workshop to allow a side-by-side comparison and expert review of the current state of the art for diagnostics and engine modeling.

Proceedings from the workshop are available to download below, including video/audio recordings of the event. The proceedings include a summary abstract followed by the presentation. When movies were used in the presentation, a .zip file of a powerpoint document and movies has been made to allow delivery of all information. (See program and planning archive.)

IMPORTANT NOTE ON USE OF THIS MATERIAL

Results of the ECN Workshop proceedings are contributed in the spirit of open scientific collaboration. Some results represent completed work, while others are from work in progress. Readers should keep this in mind when reviewing these materials. It is inappropriate to quote or reference specific results from these proceedings without first checking with the individual author(s) for permission and for the latest information on results and references.
