Combustion-Pele: Transforming Combustion Science and Technology with Exascale Simulations

Principal Investigators: Jacqueline Chen, lead, Sandia National Laboratories; Ray Grout, National Renewable Energy Laboratory; John Bell, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; Ramanan Sankaran, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Stephen Klippenstein, Argonne National Laboratory

This project involves predictive simulation of the relevant in-cylinder processes in a low-temperature reactivity-controlled compression ignition internal combustion engine that is more thermodynamically favorable than existing engines, with potential for groundbreaking efficiencies, yet limiting the formation of pollutants.
