dAM Engineering

Research and Development at dAM

Research projects at dAM range from small engine exhaust emissions reduction to jet engine fuel nozzle development for thrust and fuel economy. Outside projects have included fuel additive R & D for fuel and lubricant additive developer, GTA Technologies.

Computer Aided Design

CAD enables ideas to be explored and realized with reduced development time and less wasted materials. Head modifications of the Ford Project were developed in CAD.

Fuel/Air Mixture Ignition Control

Combustion and its optimization start with the spark. Spark plug holes can be relocated such that ignition occurs at the geometric center of the charge to ensure a quick, uniform, powerful burn.

Valve Lifter Geometry Optimization

Tolerances suitable for production engines can be less than optimal for high performance engines. Realigning valve lifters to tighter tolerances can provide benefits of more power, better wear characteristics, lower componant failure rate.
