Optimized Transverse Jet Injector for Squish Mixer in Internal Combustion
Introduction Rapid mixing is critical to efficient and clean diesel and gasoline engines, particularly those with direct fuel injection. This has long been recognized in diesel engines because of their greater fuel efficiency. Direct injection is also increasing in gasoline engines. Technology description Researchers at the UW have determined the optimum fuel injector configuration and the precise ratio of transverse to injector speeds for optimal mixing of fuel and air in internal combustion engines. Business opportunity The cost of gasoline and diesel is continuing to climb. This technology will enable optimal burning of fuel, which will result in both lower emissions and increased mileage in automobiles. Stage of development Initial data exist for this technology. Intellectual property position This technology is available for licensing. The UW is currently reviewing this technology for worldwide patent protection.
