Thesis: Numerical study of zero carbon fuel in combustion engines

In my project, I study the potential of using ammonia as a fuel for internal combustion engines. Ammonia is a carbon free fuel that is of interest to decarbonise engines. The goal of my project is to investigate burning ammonia with hydrogen and air in a compression ignition engine. I will be using numerical tools to investigate ammonia’s combustion properties. This will allow an efficient combustion in the engine with the lowest amount of emissions such as nitrogen oxides.
