The research focuses on the chairs traditional strengths such as research on the use of alternative fuels in internal combustion engines, laser-optical injection spray analyses and the analysis of emission-reducing measures on large and marine diesel engines. With current work in the areas of mixture formation (injection strategies), combustion process development, exhaust gas after treatment and development of thermodynamically based model functions for future engine control algorithms. The goal of the chair is to advance research in the field of combustion engines using renewable energy sources such as biodiesel or gas and to drastically minimize exhaust emissions.
