About Author

The IMechE is the United Kingdom's qualifying body for mechanical engineers and the home of mechanical engineers for over 150 years. Around 75,000 engineers world-wide are members.


Introductory papers: HYZEM - a joint approach towards understanding hybrid vehicle introdction into Europe CO2 reduction - is increasing the diesel share the way togo?; internal combustion engines in hybrid vehicles. Combustion: development of a hydraulic dynamic combustion rig for studies of fuel quality usng visualizaton in two directions. Engine challenges to convention: the potential of the Pivotal engine design to meet the requirements of future internal combustion engines. the merritt cycle gasoline engine - description and performance data; an Atkinson cycle engine for low pollution; the design, manufacture and demonstration of a simple, yet effective, common rail fuel injection system for 100cc engines. Engines and combustion: interpreting diesel comustion with a fuel spray computer model; disel injection - laser light sheet illumination of the developemnt of cavitation in orifices; analysis of axial stratification on SI engine performance and emissions; laser diagnostic techniques for gasolne direct injection combustion system development. Hybrid vehicles: simulation and control of an IC engine/generator auxiliary power unit for use in a series by hybrid electric vehicle; TNO-ADVANCE - a modular power-train simulation and design tool; development and application of map-controlled drive managment for a BMW parallel hybrid vehicle; 1 optimization techniques for automotive idle speed control; SYTech engines reduce packaging and NVH problems in hybrid vehicles - the CMC SYTech engine provides more advantages than are immediately obvious; a testbed for the deisgn and the optmization of a series hybrid drive train. Hybrids and engines: a quasi-dimensional model applied to 4-valves per cylinder combustion in SI engines. After-treatment and fuels: combustion analysis of coconut oil and its methyl esters in a diesel engine. Additional paper: automotive turbogenerator design options.
