CFD simulation of ammonia/biodiesel CI engine


The SUT team in WP2 is also working on CFD simulation using CONVERGE CFD software in close cooperation with WP3 in NTNU and LOGE. This short video shows liquid ammonia spray with six nozzles of GDI injector and biodiesel spray with three nozzles of CR injector. Additionally, droplets temperature along with the in-cylinder temperature is […]

Getting closer to direct injection (WP2)

SUT Team keeps working hard in the lab despite the sweltering heat in Gliwice, Poland. We are approaching ammonia combustion with direct injection. In the last few days, we managed to perform tests using the external Electronic Control Unit successfully and now we can report progress in the ammonia engine control.

“Effects of using ammonia as a primary fuel on engine performance and emissions in an ammonia/biodiesel dual-fuel CI engine “

The ACTIVATE team published their results on ammonia/biodiesel dual-fuel engine in the International Journal of Energy Research (IF=5.16) on 24 June 2022. Free open access here. Abstract: Ammonia is a promising alternative fuel that can replace current fossil fuels. Hydrogen carrier, zero carbon base emissions, liquid unlike hydrogen, and can be produced using renewable resources, […]
