New diesel fuel injection system

To successfully undertake this project it was necessary to develop a new diesel injection system, which is able to provide a homogeneous diesel and air fuel mixture, using the widest space of the combustion chamber and avoiding cylinder wall wetting by the fuel.

This injection system is based on an appropriate injection control strategy based on IFP "pre-existing know-how" including multiple injection events per stroke combined with an appropriate "space" spray pattern also based on IFP "Pre-existing know-how". This injection system is an essential result to achieve the main result of the project of new combustion process. This injection system should be further developed and manufactured by CRT.
