Diesel Engine Laboratory:
The diesel engine laboratory contains two modern diesel engine
dynamometer facilities. All the standard engine measurement, including
emissions, can be obtained. In addition, both the physical and
biological characteristics of diesel exhaust can be obtained.
Automotive Engine Laboratory:
Two automotive type engine dynamometer facilities are available
for research. These facilities have emission measuring capabilities
and high speed data acquisition capabilities.
Two-Stroke Marine Engine Laboratory:
One dynamometer facility is devoted to research associated with
two stroke engines. This facility has access to emissions measuring
equipment and high speed data acquisition equipment.
Automotive Two-Stroke Laboratory:
One dynamometer facility is being used to study the potential
of alternative fuels for automotive two-stroke engines. Piston
Temperature Measurement Laboratory: A engine dynamometer facility
has been used to investigate the piston temperatures in a running
engine through the use of a unique data acquisition system.
Small Engines Laboratory:
The small engine laboratory has a number of small engines used
for the study of engine combustion and other engine phenomena.
This laboratory contains laser instrumentation for the measurement
of the fundamental characteristics of flames. The laboratory also
contains laser instrumentation for the measurement of droplet
sizes of fuel injectors and an instrument for measuring the pattern
produced by a fuel injector spray.
A cold room is available for any research requiring a controlled
temperature and humidity.
Heat Transfer Laboratory:
A heat transfer laboratory includes research and classic heat
transfer experiments. Instrumentation is available for temperature
and other measurements.
