Research Engineer (PhD Student) – Optical Measurement Techniques
The work focuses on the detailed investigation of flow, mixture preparation, injection, ignition, combustion, pollutant formation, knocking and pre-ignition in large engines. These processes are investigated by fundamental investigations on single-cylinder research engines as well as on special test rigs with the aid of sophisticated measurement technology, including optical technology. The aim of the investigations is to analyze and understand these processes in order to provide data for the modeling and improvement of combustion systems. Research Assistant / Ph.D. Student
