APP45: MEMS Rotary Engine Power System / Engine Fluid Management System


A MEMS fuel vaporization and injection system for the Wankel engine is being designed, fabricated and characterized with the long-range goal of incorporating this system as the engine’s intake manifold. To attain this goal it is essential to gain an understanding of microscale evaporation, namely the phase eruption phenomena, of liquid hydrocarbon fuels in microchannels.
