About this book

This book focuses on combustion simulations and optical diagnostics techniques, which are currently used in internal combustion engines. The book covers a variety of simulation techniques, including in-cylinder combustion, numerical investigations of fuel spray, and effects of different fuels and engine technologies. The book includes chapters focused on alternative fuels such as DEE, biomass, alcohols, etc. It provides valuable information about alternative fuel utilization in IC engines. Use of combustion simulations and optical techniques in advanced techniques such as microwave-assisted plasma ignition, laser ignition, etc. are few other important aspects of this book. The book will serve as a valuable resource for academic researchers and professional automotive engineers alike.

About the authors

Dr. Akhilendra Pratap Singh is working at IIT Kanpur. He received his Masters and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India in 2010 and 2016 respectively. His areas of research include advanced low temperature combustion; optical diagnostics with special reference to engine endoscopy and PIV; combustion diagnostics; engine emissions measurement; particulate characterization and their control; and alternative fuels. Dr. Singh has edited 7 books and authored 21 book chapters, 40 research articles in international journals and conferences. He has been awarded with ‘ISEES Best Ph.D. Thesis Award’ (2017), ‘SERB Indo-US Postdoctoral Fellowship’ (2017) and ‘IEI Young Engineer Award’ (2017). He is a member of numerous professional societies, including SAE, ASME, and ISEES.
Dr. Pravesh Chandra Shukla is Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Bhilai. Dr. Shukla received his PhD from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. Prior to joining IIT Bhilai, he was a post-doctoral researcher in the Division of Combustion Engines, Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University, Sweden. He briefly worked in Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France in the field of dual fuel combustion. He is recipient of Young Scientist Award from the International Society for Energy, Environment and Sustainability. Dr. Shukla mainly works in the field of Internal Combustion Engines and Alternative fuels for transportation. He worked on the development of additives for high compression ratio heavy duty engines fueled with alcohol. He is involved in investigating the emission characteristics for alternative fuels like biodiesel, HVO and alcohols for conventional and advanced heavy duty compression ignition engines. During his doctoral, he was mainly involved in physico-chemical characterization of diesel engine exhaust using non-noble metal based mixed oxides diesel oxidation catalysts. Till now, he has published more than 24 technical articles in international journals and conference proceedings.
Dr. Joonsik Hwang is currently a postcotral fellow in Sandia National Laboratory, USA. He received his Masters and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Korea. His areas of research include advanced low temperature combustion; combustion diagnostics; spray and combustion characteristics; particulate characterization; and alternative fuels. Dr. Hwang has published more than 25 research articles in international journals and conferences. He has been awarded with ‘ISEES Best Ph.D. Thesis Award’ (2017) and several travel fellowship awards.
Prof. Avinash Kumar Agarwal joined IIT Kanpur in 2001. He worked at the Engine Research Center, UW@Madison, USA as a Post-Doctoral Fellow (1999 – 2001). His interests are IC engines, combustion, alternate and conventional fuels, lubricating oil tribology, optical diagnostics, laser ignition, HCCI, emissions and particulate control, and large bore engines. Prof. Agarwal has published 270+ peer reviewed international journal and conference papers, 35 edited books, 63 books chapters and has 7850+ Scopus and 11900+ Google scholar citations. He is associate editor of ASME Journal of Energy Resources Technology. He has edited “Handbook of Combustion” (5 Volumes; 3168 pages), published by Wiley VCH, Germany. Prof. Agarwal is a Fellow of SAE (2012), Fellow of ASME (2013), Fellow of NASI (2018), Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry (2018), Fellow of ISEES (2015), and a Fellow of INAE (2015). He is recipient of several prestigious awards such as Clarivate Analystics India Citation Award-2017 in Engineering and Technology, NASI-Reliance Industries Platinum Jubilee Award-2012; INAE Silver Jubilee Young Engineer Award-2012; Dr. C. V. Raman Young Teachers Award: 2011; SAE Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award -2008; INSA Young Scientist Award-2007; UICT Young Scientist Award-2007; INAE Young Engineer Award-2005. Prof. Agarwal received Prestigious Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award-2016 in Engineering Sciences.
