Abstract
The project aims to develop a strategy for an Optimum Miniature Heavy Fuel Engine, using scaled versions of a heavy fuel atomization system and combustion management systems previously developed by D-STAR, and by optimizing the engine design parameters to yield a successful OM-HFE. For the Phase 1, the project tasks include : identification of relevant engine processes and parameters; modeling of engine processes and performance; variational performance analysis and optimization, prediction of engine performance; preliminary design and layout of the engine; reporting and planning. tasks for a phase 1 option include : experimental validation of critical technologies; and iteration of the system design. The above process will lead to an optimum heavy-fuel / multi-fuel engine of less than 5 hp.
