Czero works closely with the EECL and other EECL partner organizations and has been involved with a wide range of projects at the lab.
VanDyne SuperTurbo has several programs being worked on within the EECL. The first is tied into a Department of Energy program called Fort ZED, in which energy from the Company's engines is put back onto the grid during testing. This approach is a responsible method of saving previously wasted energy. The second program being conducted within the EECL by VanDyne SuperTurbo is a gasoline engine research and durability testing program for a major German car manufacturer that if successful will lead to high volume production. Other existing programs are in support of grants and research programs for the U.S. Army and a major Department of Energy program.
What is a SuperTurbocharger? Effectively, a hybrid engine; the combination of a piston engine working together with a turbine engine. The Company's unique design integrates turbocharging, turbocompounding and supercharging into one compact device connected to the engine by a Continuously Variable Transmission.
Envirofit's scientists and researchers develop and disseminate pollution-reducing technologies that enhance the environment and public health in developing countries, foster economic growth and alleviate poverty.
The Solix Vision is to integrate engineering discipline and biology in order to unlock the complex secrets of one of the simplest organisms on Earth, microalgae, and commercialize large-scale biofuel production that will play a vital role in solving energy dependence, energy security and climate change, without competing with global food supply.

The goal of writing CONVERGE was to make engine modeling fast, easy and accurate. To this end, CONVERGE generates a mesh automatically at runtime thus eliminating all user meshing time which historically has been the limiting bottleneck for engine CFD. What’s more, in order to maximize accuracy, CONVERGE adjusts the grid density automatically to resolve gradients using an approach called adaptive mesh refinement (AMR). The goal of the CONVERGE meshing approach is to maximize accuracy while minimizing setup and run time.
CONVERGE is loaded with the physical models for spray, turbulence and combustion (including detailed chemistry) needed to accurately model any engine type including spark ignited, Diesel, natural gas and HCCI. Finally, CONVERGE runs great in parallel.
Use CONVERGE CFD and Never Make a Mesh Again.
