Optimisation of low temperature combustion technology, for future drive cycles, using a factorial design of experiments (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Van Niekerk, A. S., Kay, P. J., Drew, B., & Larsen, N. (2019). Optimisation of low temperature combustion technology, for future drive cycles, using a factorial design of experiments

Automotive manufacturers are facing increased pressure to meet more stringent emissions legislation and new legislative driving cycles. One technology that has the potential to meet future legislation is Low Temperature Combustion (LTC), which has th...
