CCEFP Webinar to Cover Topics in Lubricity and Trajectory-Based HCCI Combustion

CCEFP Webinar

The 2018-19 CCEFP Webinar Series is underway and covers a number of fluid power research projects supported by the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation Research Supplements. The next episode, taking place February 20 at 12 pm CST, will feature two projects: Mechano-Chemical Surface Modification with Cu2S: Inducing Superior Lubricity, presented by Michael Varenberg (GaTech), and Modeling and Optimization of Trajectory-Based HCCI Combustion, presented by Zongxuan Sun (UMN). The presentations will give updates on these fluid power research projects and their impacts and provide other progress updates.

The webinar series is a great opportunity to learn more about fluid power research projects and how they benefit this industry as well as contribute to the emerging workforce. It is open to CCEFP industry consortium members, NFPA members, and academic partners of these organizations. The monthly webcast series will showcase a number of the other Research Supplement recipients throughout the upcoming months.
