Scientists Burst onto Influential List for Combustion Research
Date:7/25/2014

Livermore, California (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

Lawrence Livermore scientists Charles Westbrook and William Pitz have been named to Thomson Reuters list of "The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds."

Westbrook and Pitz are part of the 3,000 researchers who were identified by analyzing citation data over the last 11 years to recognize those who published the highest-impact work (2002-2012 and 2012-2013). The two were selected from their numerous research papers on combustion modeling.

"This recognition is a great honor for Charlie Westbrook and Bill Pitz and extremely well deserved," LLNL Director Bill Goldstein said. "It also is indicative of the bright minds working together at Lawrence Livermore to solve some of the nation's most challenging problems."

Westbrook and Pitz produced a chemical kinetic study of fuel additives for engine knock in spark ignition engines, a feat that earned them the 1991 Horning Award from the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

Their area of research is to develop chemical kinetic mechanisms for conventional fuels like gasoline and diesel fuel, and also for next-generation fuels, such as new types of biofuels being considered as potential replacements for fossil fuels.

The chemical kinetic mechanism of Westbrook and Pitz are used in computer codes to simulate combustion in internal combustion engines used in
