A Report on - 1 day Seminar
The one day seminar on Combustion Concepts to meet future emission norms was successfully organised on 26th of February 2011 at The Automotive Research Association of India which witnessed an enthusiastic response and participation from practicing engineers, scholars and students in the discipline of engineering. The speakers at the seminar were:
Prof. Dr. Bengt Johansson, Head, Division of Combustion engines & Vice – head of Department at Lund University, Sweden
Mr. S. Juttu, solution Architect, KPIT Cummins, Pune
Prof. Dr. Bengt Johansson
Prof. Dr. Bengt Johansson explained the combustion techniques like Homogeneous charge compression ignition, Partially premixed combustion, spark assisted compression ignition and their optimization to meet the future emission norms. His talk enlightened the participants with extensive information on new researches in the field of combustion.
Mr. S. Juttu
Mr. S. Juttu, delivered lecture on Review, Simulation and Adaptation of HCCI/PCCI Combustion. The lecture started off with the basic concepts of these combustion techniques and took the audience through advanced simulation techniques such as Chemkin, CFD and analysis tools like combustion photography. He explained the effect of various parameters on the emissions of HCCI and PCCI engines which were observed during research studies.
This event saw the trial run of the “online seminars” which was decided to be included under the steps towards energise the SAEINDIA Western section activities. It was made possible by using the WebEx facility and the audio conferencing facility simultaneously. The audio conferencing facility was well supported by SAEINDIA The online seminar trial run was offered free of cost to 25 participants and received a healthy response. The benefits of online seminar reached more than 25 participants who logged in at different timings in the day. Also, the online seminar proved to be an occasion for the organizers to understand the systems better and confidently venture into such endeavors in future.
The seminar succeeded in elaborating on the basic and advanced concepts related to engine combustion to meet future emission norms. The gathering of around 50 at the seminar constituted practicing engineers at various automotive companies, ancillaries, professors, researchers and students.
