Mission and vision

Optimizing the combustion engine is an ongoing process. We support our members in the handling of pre-competitive technical developments. We put our trust in the ideas of our member companies, in the engagement that goes into the joint projects and in the quality of our research partners. This will continue to be the basis of our work in the future.

Curiosity without limits

On course for Europe

We have set ourselves an important goal for the near future: we want to develop into a European platform for joint research in engines and turbines. To this end, we will expand out network internationally by incorporating European companies and research institutes on a long term basis. Furthermore, we will give the culture of cooperation at FVV a bigger role than before. Creative ideas and dedicated people must ensure the long-term success of joint research.

Topics for the future

Many important challenges await the combustion engine – and we will be prepared to face them. Here is a selection of the topics we will be handling most intensively:

Complete systems

  • Potential analysis of new technologies and alternative drive systems
  • Lost energy recovery
  • Controls, regulation, sensors
  • Charging

Combustion processes and fuel preparation

  • HCCI (Diesel/Otto)
  • Hydrogen combustion
  • Downsizing concepts
  • Fuel distribution and preparation, high pressure injection
  • Optimized combustion and emission reduction

Fuels with a focus on CO2 emissions

  • Synfuel
  • Hydrogen
  • Natural gas

Exhaust gases treatment

  • Catalytic converter modelling for reaction kinetics
  • Local emissions determination
  • High-resolution online measurement techniques

Mechanics and acoustics

  • New materials and coolants
  • Tribology and coatings
  • Engine mechanics and stability
  • Engine dynamics and acoustics

Turbine aerodynamics

  • Complete turbine systems, radial and axial flow compressors
  • Blade cooling, secondary air systems
