EPSRC CASE studentship Combustion in Strongly Charged Spark-Ignition Engines



Closing date: 3 January 2014

Scholarship type: Home/EU

UK/EU Fees: £3,950

Maintenance: £16,726

Further information:

This CASE studentship is supported by Afton Chemical Corporation. The project will aim to study combustion in modern strongly turbocharged spark-ignition engines, with particular emphasis on interaction of lubricant with the latest stages of combustion where the flame strongly interacts with solid walls. It will also seek to clarify appearance of the highly destructive “super-knock” phenomenon. The project will include both experiments and modelling.

In addition to the standard EPSRC requirements for CASE students which can be found at:
http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/skills/students/help/Pages/eligibility.aspx 

The candidate will possess:

  1. A good UG degree in Physics, Applied Mathematics, Chemical or Mechanical Engineering.
  2. Good background knowledge and interest in combustion science and its application to strongly turbocharged spark-ignition engines.

For more details contact Dr Alexy Burluka, School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds, via the email address A.A.Burluka@leeds.ac.uk or telephone: +44 (0)113 343 2220

The studentship is available for the successful candidate to start April 2014 at the latest.
