IIT Kanpur invites applications for its short term course on 'Advanced Combustion, Emissions and Modeling Aspects' for the academic year 2014. This course is offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering of IITK. Students can apply online by logging on to the official website of IITK.
Current automobile technology has matured significantly over the past few years. Engine technologies have come across a significant change to improve the efficiency and cost. At the same time, world is also confronted with the twin crises of fossil fuel depletion and environmental degradation. Indiscriminate extraction and lavish consumption of fossil fuels have led to reduction in underground-based carbon resources. This has propelled the development of advanced engine technologies, which promise a harmonious correlation with sustainable development, energy conservation, management, efficiency and environmental preservation.
With increasing environmental awareness worldwide, stringent regulations for fuel consumption, and exhaust emissions, including those for PM (Particulate Matter) and NOx are evolving. Under these circumstances, diesel engines would continue to be attractive because of their low fuel consumption and high power output however they have to emerge as clean primary power sources.
This course focuses on various advanced engine technologies, diagnostics and modeling tools developed recently in automobile industry. The emphasis is on providing the participant an up-to-date knowledge of the advances in these areas.
There will be three lectures every day of 90 minutes each (five days) and this will be followed by lab experiment demonstration session of two hours each day (three days). There will be a book exhibition related to engine technologies. The last day of the course will be for the field visit to Engine Development Directorate, RDSO Lucknow, Ministry of Railways (Not compulsory) to observe large bore engine research facility of Indian Railways.
