About the Project
Utilisation of hydrogen gas mixtures as means of controlling engine exhaust emissions through combustion improvements or aftertreatment systems enhanced performance. Experimental study using fully equipped engine test rigs and/or optical constant volume combustion chamber with optical diagnostics techniques. Addition of hydrogen to the engine combustion chamber and/or the exhaust gas has the potential to provide efficient control of gaseous and particulate emissions of engines fuelled with conventional or alternative fuels. The project will aim to explore optimal hydrogen addition to the engine or aftertreatment system so that the emissions will be reduced over the full range of engine operating conditions.
Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: https://www.brunel.ac.uk/research/Research-degrees/Research-degree-funding. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
