11–14 September 2018 Thermo and Fluid Dynamic Processes in Direct Injection Engines
THIESEL 2018 is the tenth edition of the THIESEL Conference on Thermo-and Fluid Dynamic Processes in Direct Injection Engines and this anniversary is worth a celebration! It indicates that THIESEL has acquired over the years a consolidated position as a meeting point between industry, research institutions and academia involved in R&D for automotive engines.
THIESEL has been a forum where combustion engines developers have presented and discussed innovations and challenges of the past 20 years, and naturally, it strives to remain that way for the next 20 years. True, combustion engines are widely unpopular nowadays and manufacturers face even tougher challenges in view of the restrictive environmental issues. However, no doubt combustion engines will remain the main propulsion system in transport for the next 20 to 50 years, at least for as long as alternative solutions based on renewable energy sources cannot provide the flexibility expected by customers of the 21st century.
Which means that innovative research is needed to ensure that future combustion engines adapt perfectly to the new societal needs. And research can only progress if there is exchange of valuable knowledge and experience between the main actors of the automotive R&D sector. THIESEL 2018 aims at providing Academia researchers and Industry developers the ideal setting for these high tech exchanges.
