Combustion Characteristics of Liquid Fuel with Nanostructured Additives
The primary aim of the research is to develop fundamental understanding of the effects of adding nanostructured additives into liquid fuel on combustion performance. Potential improvements may include higher energy density, better catalytic effect, higher burning rate, shorter ignition delay, lower emissions and so on. The research will focus on the applications of graphene materials on the liquid fuel to improve the combustion performance. It is expected that the successful application of graphene additives to liquid fuel will usher in a new era of fuel design for the next-generation energy and propulsion systems. The research is expected to have a significant positive impact on the environment and climate as well as energy and propulsion system performance.
