Engine Research Center

Founded in 1946 by two UW–Madison professors, the Engine Research Center (ERC) is the largest academic research center focused on internal combustion engines in the U.S. and serves as a national resource for information on combustion engine science and technology. ERC research teams approach their investigations with a unique combination of modeling and experimental capabilities, and focus on the fluid mechanics, heat transfer, combustion, sprays, pollutant emissions, and overall energy conversion efficiency of internal combustion engines.
