Convergent Science, Inc. Joins the Direct-injection Engine Research Consortium (DERC)
Convergent Science, Inc. is pleased to announce that they have joined the Direct-injection Engine Research Consortium (DERC). This partnership will allow collaboration with an impressive array of global thought leaders (both academic and industrial) of internal combustion engine design and modeling.
Dr. Kelly Senecal, Vice President of Convergent Science, Inc, said:
“We are delighted to join the Direct-injection Engine Research Consortium. The mission of DERC is in harmony with Convergent Science’s goal of providing industry-leading CFD technologies for modeling internal combustion engines. We look forward to working with the DERC.”
Dr. Sage Kokjohn, Assistant Professor from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, adds:
“One of the goals of the Engine Research Center’s (ERC) Direct-injection Engine Research Consortium (DERC) is to bridge the gap between academic research and industrial application. We develop and analyze pre-competitive technologies and this work would not be possible without the continued support of our industrial partners. DERC’s close collaboration with the engine industry and suppliers allows us to develop the tools and technology that will be needed to build the next generation of high-efficiency, low-emissions engines.”
The Direct-injection Engine Research Consortium was founded in 2004 by the Engine Research Center (ERC) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Their mission is to assist engine manufacturers in the never-ending quest of providing cleaner and more fuel efficient engines to the global marketplace. Currently, around 30 organizations related to diesel and gasoline engines are members.
