Area presentation

Temperatures in internal combustion engines and vehicles (with or without electrification) vary considerably. This has a significant impact on fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. The objectives of this topic are to identify solutions, develop new concepts and test them in order to reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions.

Research in this area is organized into 4 parts:

PART 1: Nodal modelling for advanced thermal-management of internal combustion engines

PART 2: Influence of the active cooling thermal management valve on fuel consumption & engine warm-up

PART 3: Oil strategy benefits over different driving cycles using numerical simulation

PART 4: Hot water storage strategy in internal combustion engines
