During his professional and academic activity Cesare Pianese has been working in the field of internal combustion engines, alternative propulsion systems and computational fluid dynamics: Electronic control of spark ignition engines: Development of models and computational codes for the optimal design of Engine Control Strategies. Simulation and experimental analysis of dynamic processes. Diagnosis of control system (OBD). Modelling of Diesel engines: Development of numerical models for the simulation of combustion in High Speed Direct Injection Common-Rail Multi-Jet Diesel engines. Emissions: Development of models for the simulation of pollutant emissions from SI and Diesel automotive engines. Alternative propulsion systems: Modelling of hybrid propulsion systems and on-board energy flow management for Hybrid Vehicles. Modeling and Control of Fuel Cells and their application to ground transportation systems. Computational fluid-mechanics: Numerical simulation of 3-dimensional turbulent fluid flows with Large Eddy Simulation. Cesare Pianese has developed his main research activity in the framework of project funded by industries (Magneti Marelli, Élasis, Snam), and National and Regional Government organizations. He’s author and co-author of more than 70 papers.
