Papers spanning the subjects of variable vale actuation, variable compression ratio, optimization of valve-life profile, and various forms of supercharging are presented side by side in these sessions because their effects on engine breathing, exhaust gas recirculation, and combustion can be qualitatively similar or complimentary to a surprising degree. In addition, combinations of hardware from these previously distinct engine systems can be investigated and produced. The papers' technical contributions span the gamut from simulation and flowfield mapping in a research environment to prototype engine testing, to descriptions of complete, production-intent engine systems
