We are a team of seven students, and are currently in the second year of training at the School of Mines de Douai. We chose to work on a draft agreement with our interests, and that includes both technical and environmental aspects.
The band was formed around the idea of the recovery and the continuation of a project started last year: the Echo-Engine project. Implementation and test of a mounting 100% Pantone giving results mixed at best, we decided this year to make and study a system of 'water doping "of a diesel engine.
This system, "unofficially" performance, reduce consumption as well as pollution. Before the amount of available and disseminated on the internet results but without details or guarantees on the conditions of implementation, it seemed necessary to establish a rigorous process to determine actual characteristics of this method, also called Gillier-Pantone.
Our contractor, who was both a major technical and financial partner of our project is CRITT M2A of Bruay-la-Buissière, the Research Center for Technical Innovation in Automotive Engines and Acoustics. He supported the cost of parts required to manufacture the various organs of Gillier-Pantone system and has provided us a test bench for performing tests.
The Echo Moteur² project consists of performing tests on a prototype system of "water doping." Beyond the technical aspect, a communication process was established to present our project, our approach and disseminate the results of our tests and the conclusions we have drawn from them through various media. We also participated in a forum and held a conference during the Sustainable Development Week. Creating a website emerged as an important step in the process of realization of our project. This presents all of our approach, our achievement and our results and decided to create a dynamic website where users could respond through our guestbook.
This project was an opportunity for us to acquire knowledge through experimentation. At the end of our work, we can see that the prototype tested water doping system works but gains on consumption are zero. These findings should be seen in the context of the experience and the generalization of the past is not possible, the principle of water doping is provided in various forms that may be more or less effective. It is conceivable that a new team is continuing research in the field of water doping.
