A post-doctorate engineer at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, has created a series of computer models, inspired by Charles Darwin's rules of evolution, to design high-performance diesels of the future. Peter Senecal devised algorithms for computer models that sort through billions of combinations of parameters to calculate engine performance. The process is too big for conventional computer simulations. Mr. Senecal claims that his algorithms help improve emissions without sacrificing ...
