CAI CAI Queen's University Belfast
Climate change is undoubtedly one of the greatest concerns of our generation. Global warming is a consequence of harmful greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx... more >>
Catalyst Models for Unsteady Flow Applications Catalyst Models for Unsteady Flow Applications Queen's University Belfast
The objective of this project is to develop a model of an automotive catalytic converter that is based on unsteady flow theory, rather than the steady flow assumptions that are traditionally used in t... more >>
One Dimensional Engine Modelling One Dimensional Engine Modelling Queen's University Belfast
The development of one dimensional computer-based engine design models has been the main focus areas of the ICERG research for many years. The group is well known for this activity and the models are ... more >>
Engine Fault Diagnostics Queen's University Belfast
The regulations associated with current on-board diagnostic (OBD) systems demand very strict monitoring of engine performance at certain intervals. This monitoring entails the diagnosis of any fault w... more >>
Computational Fluid Dynamics Computational Fluid Dynamics Queen's University Belfast
The use of computational fluid dynamics in the Internal Combustion Engine Research Group stretches back to 1985, when it was use to model the scavenging flow in two-stroke engines. However, the applic... more >>
Software-enhanced Fast Temperature Measurement Software-enhanced Fast Temperature Measurement Queen's University Belfast
Introduction Accurate instantaneous measurement of dynamic temperature variations is a challenging problem. The harsh environment in automotive exhaust systems for example requires robust and therefo... more >>
