Public awareness regarding pollutants and their adverse health effects has created an urgent need for engineers to better understand the combustion process as well as the pollutants formed as by-products of that process. To effectively contribute to emission control strategies and design and develop emission control systems and components, a good understanding of the physical and mathematical principles of the combustion process is necessary. This seminar will bring issues related to combustion and emissions "down to earth," relying less on mathematical terms and more on physical explanations and analogies.
Identify and describe the important processes in combustion and emission
Identify the formation mechanisms and reduction strategies of pollutant species in combustion systems
Recognize the effects of engine design and operating conditions on combustion and emission
Explain the technology and the logic behind after-treatment of pollutants
Identify the underlying laws and principles used in combustion and emission black-boxed computer programs
Explain the role chemical kinetics plays in the design of low-emission combustion systems
Identify design trade-offs between increasing engine performance and maintaining low emission characteristics
Is This Course For You
Engineers working on the design of combustion engine components, software development and application for modeling of thermal-fluid, combustion and emissions processes, and those working on the reduction of harmful pollutants emissions will find this course valuable.

SAE MOBILUS® Search Tips
Please note: All terms not contained within quotes, will be evaluated using the OR operator. This means that your search results will contain all results that contain ANY of the entered terms.
AND, OR, NOT
SAE MOBILUS supports the use of the AND, OR and NOT BOOLEAN operators ONLY function with the Advanced Search.
Using the asterisk, ( * ) allows you to search for a partial word. For example, entering a keyword search of aero* will search for any word beginning with aero.
Using the question mark, ( ? ) allows you to search for a word with a single character wildcard. For example, searching for t?re would match both tire and tyre
Words in double quotes " " are treated as a phrase. Conducting a search for "heat model" will return all results in which the exact phrase "heat model" is found, while "heat modeling" would NOT be included.
A term combined with a phrase will be joined with an OR operator.
Searching for Standards
When searching for a standard please use the entire Document Number assigned, which includes the abbreviation. A space can be used, or omitted between the abbreviation and number.
