CMCL Innovations, a partner in the APC funded ASCENT project, have been making waves in the world of simulation. Dr Julian Dizy presented their exciting developments in simulation technology, an output of their collaborative APC project, at the SAE Congress, in Detroit.
The work demonstrates a significant improvement in CMCL’s proprietary SRM Engine Suite software which can aid in the robust and cost-effective development of state-of-the-art internal combustion engines.
Work performed through this project involved Perkins Engines Company Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc) applying the software over the entire engine load-speed operation map for their modern off-highway diesel engine, that validated the capability of the model for predicting combustion characteristics and engine-out NOx emissions consistently.
The APC 3 ASCENT project is a collaboration between Perkins Engines Company Limited, CMCL Innovations, Loughborough University and Imperial College London which will develop innovative technologies for UK built off-highway diesel engines.
