Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur Short-Term Course

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur Short-Term Course

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur Short-Term Course On Design of Engines for Emission Compliance April 17-21, 2019




Current automobile technology has matured significantly over the past few years. Engine technologies have come across a significant change to improve the efficiency and cost. However, the world is also confronted with the twin crises of fossil fuel depletion and environmental degradation. Indiscriminate extraction and lavish consumption of
fossil fuels have led to reduction in undergroundbased carbon resources. This calls for advanced designs of the engines and deployment of relevant engine technologies, which promise a harmonious correlation with sustainable development, energy conservation, management, efficiency and environmental preservation.


With increasing environmental awareness worldwide, stringent regulations for fuel consumption, and exhaust emissions, including those for PM (Particulate Matter) and NOx are further evolving. Under these circumstances, diesel engines would continue to be attractive because of their relatively lower fuel consumption and higher power output compared to their gasoline counterparts however both have to emerge as clean primary power sources.


This course focuses on designing of various engine components and technologies, diagnostics and modeling tools. The emphasis is on providing the participant an up-to-date knowledge of the advances in design of engine components and sub-systems for emission compliance.




* Designs of Engines
* Combustion
* Cylinder Head and Liner Design
* Cooling System, Bearings, Lubricating System Design
* Design of Connecting Rod and Crankshaft
* Turbocharger Matching
* Design of EGR and SCR Systems
* Gasoline direct injection engine design
* Injectors, sprays & droplet size distribution
* Optical Research Engine and flow diagnostics
* Engine exhaust particle formation and Control
* 1-D modeling of engines, fuel injection systems, and engine cooling system
* New and Emerging fuels
* Challenges of Emerging fuels such as Methanol
* Emerging gaseous fuels
* Engine Calibration




The course will be taught by experts from academia and Industry.


Some of the potential faculties are:


* Dr. P A Laxminarayan, Simpson Engines, Chennai
* Prof. Avinash Kumar Agarwal, IIT Kanpur
* Dr. Nitin Labhsetwar, NEERI Nagpur
* Dr. Anirudh Gautam, RDSO Lucknow




There will be four lectures every day of 90 minutes each (five days; 17-21 April, 2019) and this will be followed by lab experiment demonstration session on three days.


There will be a book exhibition related to engine technologies.


Those participants, who attend the at least 80% of the lectures/ Lab sessions will be provided with a certificate of successful completion of training program from IIT Kanpur.




The Continuing Education Cell of Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur conducts courses in Engineering and Science for the benefit of the faculty of engineering colleges in the country under Quality Improvement Program of All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).


Research engineers/ scientists working in automotive industries, DRDO, CSIR laboratories, and other practicing engineers can participate in this course and benefit.


Course duration: April 17-21, 2019


Accommodation: Accommodation for the duration of the course shall be provided in the guest house of IIT Kanpur on twin sharing basis.




Thirty participants from AICTE Approved engineering academic institutions will be selected to attend the course at IIT Kanpur. Applicants should be engaged in technical teaching. Selected candidates will be paid AC-3 tier railway fair by the shortest route and a daily allowance as per QIP norms (for five days). Boarding, lodging, Food expenses and local travel expenses shall be borne by the participants. Application should be made on the registration form attached along with caution deposit of Rs. 1000/- in the form of crossed bank draft in favor of “Continuing Education Program, IIT Kanpur” payable at State Bank of India, IIT Kanpur. This deposit will be refunded to all those candidates, who are either not selected to participate in the course or who finally attend the course. For the participants, who are selected and do not attend the course, caution money will be forfeited.


The registration form, complete in all respects, duly forwarded by the head of the institution, accompanied by demand draft and a covering letter should reach the organizer on or before March 30th, 2019.


All successful candidates will be provided the certificates.
