2017 Robinson Engine Design, Christian Klem, Alli Giblin, James Gross Nov 2017

2017 Robinson Engine Design, Christian Klem, Alli Giblin, James Gross

ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium

The Robinson-Malibu patent is an engine design theory that will reduce emissions, increase MPGs and performance.


Performance Results Of Using Waste Vegetable Oil Based Biodiesel Fuel In A Turboshaft Gas Turbine Engine, Donald Bartlett 5218591, Blaine M. Heisner Nov 2017

Performance Results Of Using Waste Vegetable Oil Based Biodiesel Fuel In A Turboshaft Gas Turbine Engine, Donald Bartlett 5218591, Blaine M. Heisner

ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium

The purpose of this research is to record and compare the operating parameters of a turboshaft gas turbine engine using two different blends of biodiesel fuel and the standard Jet A fuel.


What Happens To Nox Emissions Of Vw Diesel Cars When Water/Methanol Injection Is Used?, Andrew Croxell Nov 2017

What Happens To Nox Emissions Of Vw Diesel Cars When Water/Methanol Injection Is Used?, Andrew Croxell

ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium

Volkswagen has come under fire for their "Clean Diesel" automobiles that were found to emit too much NOx (Oxides of Nitrogen) when driven on the street. Since NOx is created by high temperature combustion events, the addition of a water/methanol injection system was tested on a VW diesel vehicle to identify if it could cool combustion temperatures and thus reduce NOx to an acceptable specification.


Advanced Multi-Speed Transmissions And Their Effect On Fuel Economy, Durability And Reliability, Sean Boyle Nov 2017

Advanced Multi-Speed Transmissions And Their Effect On Fuel Economy, Durability And Reliability, Sean Boyle

ASA Multidisciplinary Research Symposium

In a challenge to meet the high corporate average fuel economy (CAFE), manufacturers are using transmissions with 8, 9, and 10 speeds. This oral presentation addresses vehicle fuel economy impact with advanced multi-speed transmissions and also forecasts the reliability and durability when compared to a conventional 5 and 6-speed transmission.


Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (Bsfc) In Gasoline Powered Cars, Michael Carlson, Dr. Cecilia J. Vogel May 2017

Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (Bsfc) In Gasoline Powered Cars, Michael Carlson, Dr. Cecilia J. Vogel

Celebration of Learning

The goal of this experiment was to determine which driving behaviors result in the highest fuel efficiency for a given trip. We collected data for speed (MPH), engine speed (RPM), engine power (Torque/LOD), and fuel consumption (MPG) using the ScanGauge II.


Sae Baja Data Acquisition System, Ryan Carl, Ryan Rose, Gabe Sevigny, Nathanael Smith Apr 2017

Sae Baja Data Acquisition System, Ryan Carl, Ryan Rose, Gabe Sevigny, Nathanael Smith

Scholar Week 2016 - present

The Olivet Nazarene University SAE Baja team designs a custom off-road vehicle every year to compete against teams from other schools at competitions throughout the year. The current car that the Baja team is working on needs some improvements, but they need some help gathering data to see where to make these improvements. In previous years, the Baja team would not have any feedback besides what they observed while driving, so this year they have tasked the SAE Baja Data Acquisition design group with the project of creating a sensor system and a data logging program to gather information that ...
