"My Engine is Still Progressing in Leaps and Bounds"

                                                                                                                    -Rudolf Diesel

 

Engine Research Laboratory was created in the Department of Mechanical Engineering on October 16th, 2005. The aim of this laboratory is to develop state-of-art experiments related to Internal Combustion engines and vehicles apart from emission and engine related tribological investigations. This is a dedicated lab for IC Engines which aspires to be the first lab in the country to use laser diagnostics and micro-sensors for engines. This dedicated engine research lab paves the way for a balanced development of this front-line area of research. The lab has several fully instrumented single and multi-cylinder engine test benches for different types of engines/dynamometers.

Presently, ERL is working on Development of Methanol Fuelled Engines and DME Fuelled Engines for Indian Automotive Sector under the guidance of National Institution for Transforming India (NITI AAYOG). Also, ERL is working on several advanced research topics such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) for in-cylinder flow visualization, Phase Doppler Interferrometry (PDI) for spray characterization, combustion visualization and optical diagnostics, Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI), Gasoline Compression Injection (GCI), HCCI/PCCI/RCCI of gasoline and diesel like fuels, Engine Noise and vibration, Laser Ignition of CNG and hydrogen.
 

ERL aspires to be a leading engine and fuel research lab in international and national arena.
