  • Harrison, M. F.; Dunkley, A. (Elsevier, 2004-04-06)
    Naturally aspirated racing engines have tuned intake systems and can now achieve volumetric efficiencies in excess of 125% and peak engine speeds in excess of 18,000 rev/min. Engines designed for single seater racing ...
  • Theodoridis, Eudoxios (Cranfield University, 2009-03)
    This thesis explores the idea of igniting LPG in a compression ignition diesel engine using pilot diesel injection as spark ignition medium. The main advancement in using this technology on current diesel engines is the ...
  • Mohamad, Taib Iskandar (Cranfield University, 2006-07)
    In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful. By His will, this thesis has been completed as another episode of knowledge seeking and contribution. The author wishes to express a greatest gratitude to the ...
  • Harrison, M. F.; Perez Arenas, R. (Elsevier, 2004-02)
    This paper concerns the calculation of wave dynamics in the intake systems of naturally aspirated internal combustion (I.C.) engines. In particular it presents a method for improving the boundary conditions required to ...
  • Dolinar, A (Cranfield University, 2006-04)
    The intake system is one of the components on the internal combustion engine most linked with the achievement of the high volumetric efficiency required of naturally aspirated engines. High performance racing ...
  • Kelly, Daniel Patrick (Cranfield University, 2008-05-07)
    A numerical method is presented for the time optimal control of the race car. The method is then used to perform the role of the driver in numerical simulations of manoeuvres at the limit of race car performance. The ...
  • Harrison, M. F.; Stanev, P. T. (Elsevier, 2004-01-06)
    In this paper, a linear acoustic model is described that has proven useful in obtaining a better understanding of the nature of acoustic wave dynamics in the intake system of an internal combustion (IC) engine. The model ...
  • Harrison, M. F.; Rubio Unzueta P. L.; De Soto, I. (Elsevier, 2004-12)
    This paper presents a linear acoustic model of a multi-cylinder intake manifold that can be used as part of a hybrid time/frequency domain method to calculate the intake wave dynamics of practical naturally aspirated ...
  • Croft-White, Michael (Cranfield UniversityDepartment of Automotive, Mechanical and Structural Engineering, 2006-05)
    This research aims to investigate the nature of high β-angle cornering as seen in rallying and in particular the World Rally Championship. This is achieved through a combination of sensor development, on-car measurement and ...

  • Harrison, M. F.; Stanev, P. T. (Elsevier, 2004-01-06)
    Wave dynamics in the intake system are known to strongly influence the performance of naturally aspirated internal combustion (I.C.) engines. Detailed measurements of the wave dynamics are required to: optimise the performance ...
  • Styles, M. J. (Cranfield University, 2004-04)
    This study is an investigation into the use of computer aided handling and stability analysis for motorcycles. In particular it considers Triumph Motorcycles Ltd., delving into Triumph's background, their strategy and ...
  • Brayshaw, Damien (Cranfield University, 2004-08)
    The aim of this research is to use numerical optimisation to investigate the on-limit behaviour of an open wheel downforce type race car using the best compromise of modelling accuracy and computational effort. The ...
