Research Approach

The IAAPS Team at the University of Bath was awarded an APC grant to develop a high specific power, modular combustion system and associated engine technologies for application in future vehicle programmes. The APC supports the development of a completely new generation of technically advanced engines offering significantly improved CO2 figures for high performance vehicles. IAAPS’ main responsibility in this project is to advance capabilities in ICE system efficiency R&D.

Outcomes and Customer Benefits

Technology resulting from this project will be implemented in a new generation of advanced engines for high-performance vehicles. This project results in significant CO2 reduction in high-performance cars.
