This five day specialist course, now in its 28th year, is designed for diesel automotive and petroleum engineers and research workers engaged in the development of low particulate and NOx emission diesel engines and their fuels and lubricants. These are major current problem areas in diesel engine development with ever more stringent emissions legislation to meet in the automotive, industrial, marine and power generation markets. This course concentrates on the engine technology for low emissions, their fuel requirements and after-treatment techniques.
The course consists of review lectures by Professor Andrews of the latest published information on engine design for low emissions, on the influence of fuel and additive composition on emissions and on the influence of lubricating oil on emissions. These review lectures are updated each year and incorporate the latest published results from engine manufacturers, consultants and oil companies as well as universities. A range of lectures is also given by industrial companies on their recent low emission engine research into diesel particulates and NOx reduction techniques as well as on their views on engine technology requirements for future emissions legislation. The programme of lectures is very full and participants are free to choose the lectures most relevant to them.
The course will be relevant to engineers, researchers and teachers in diesel engines, combustion and pollution. It will be suitable both as an overview for those new to the diesel particulate and NOx area and to provide a wider awareness for those already working in this field. Although the emphasis is on the transport sector, the course is also relevant to the stationary diesel and marine diesel market. In addition, it is of relevance to environmentalists engaged on atmospheric PM10 measurement and research, where diesel particulates have been identified as a significant contributor. The course is also relevant to those involved in emissions regulation formulation and in transport planning for emissions reduction.
