Thirteen papers from the SAE International Spring Fuels & Lubricants Meeting & Exhibition. A number of issues pertaining to diesel combustion and emissions modeling are addressed, which can be categorized into the following areas: Modeling of cavitation process and transient behavior in the high-pressure diesel injection system, Optimization of high-pressure common rail injector via genetic algorithms, Kinetic analyses of combustion and NOx formation processes in DI diesel engines. With papers authored by researchers at I.C. Engines and Combustion Laboratory, ETH Zurich; Institute for Advanced Engineering; Mechanical Engineering, University of Applied Sciences, Hamburg, Germany; Delphi Automotive Center; Vanderbilt University, and others. Topics include: Analysis of Combustion Instability Phenomena in a CNG-Fueled Heavy-Duty Turbocharged Engine; Measurements and Modeling of Residual Gas Fraction in SI Engines; ECUTEST~A Real-time Engine Simulator for ECU Development and Testing; V Order Logarithmic Polynomials of Thermodynamic Calculations in ICE; Model Based Determination of Dynamic Engine Control Function Parameters, and more.
