2012 SAE World Congress engages the automotive world this week
While the SAE International website features the 2012 SAE World Congress this week, TorqueNews writers will be engaged as well, especially at the Exhibition at Detroit's Cobo Center. Why? Anything and everything that pertains to automotive and transportation technologies will be on hand.
In particular, the SAE 2012 High Efficiency IC Engines Symposium which actually starts today at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel next to Cobo Center combines technology presentations with networking opportunities for professionals associated with technologies impacting fuel efficiency. The technical program includes an overview of the regulatory outlook followed by discussion of technologies such as advanced and partially premixed combustion, cooled EGR boosting, ignition and direct injection technologies, pressure boosting, intelligent combustion, thermal efficiency including waste heat recovery, fully variable valvetrains, and other new and developing technologies.
This year's program also will include a new session on future fluids and fuels for high efficiency engines. Participants will include automotive and light-, medium- and heavy-duty OEMs, suppliers, and academia.
