This area of interest is for new or early-development concepts applicable to one or more of a range of topics supporting and enabling the improved fuel efficiency, performance, and emissions in internal combustion engines, including low-cost, robust sensors for engine exhaust constituents and in-cylinder phenomena; waste heat recovery; variable compression ratio; variable valve actuation and timing; lightweight components; reduced friction; low heat rejection and thermal management; low energy penalty emission controls; advanced fuel injection; intake air management; and turbomachinery. The proposed work is to focus on technologies supporting high-efficiency, clean-combustion technology, including low-temperature and homogeneous charge compression ignition combustion.
