DescriptionDYNAMO (Dynamic Analysis Modelling and Optimisation of GDI engines) is an R&D project co-sponsored by the Advanced Propulsion Centre – APC6 Call. In collaboration with Ford Motor Company (Project Lead) and six other UK based partners – Loughborough University, Bath University, Siemens CDA, Hartree Centre, Cambustion, DE&TC.
The project aims to significantly improve the fuel efficiency of two high volume passenger vehicle powertrains with specific intent to simultaneously reduce CO2 and noxious emissions.
Modern, fuel efficient Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engines have been shown to actually emit more particulate than diesel engines. Worryingly, GDI engines emit particulate matter mostly in the ultra-fine size range, where current tail-pipe gas filters show low filtration efficiency. This has serious environmental consequences and health implications. (1)
During the project the team helps to develop and mature new and upgraded advanced engine technology ready for commercialisation and aims to revolutionise the process and methodology currently used to design and develop complex powertrains. It will demonstrate an analytical approach which enables multiple engine systems to be optimised to multiple objectives in parallel and under transient conditions to improve legislated and real world fuel economy, whilst drastically reducing development time and costs.(2)
High Performance Computing (HPC) allows scientists and engineers to solve complex, compute-intensive problems efficiently. Hartree centre is supporting the project with HPC facilities and optimising the end results.
