Associate professor of mechanical engineering Song-Charng Kong is working with engineers at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory to study the fundamental physics of fuel spraying into diesel engines.

The Defense Department is supporting the work with a five-year grant of $500,000 and one billion supercomputer hours.
