Measure and Control

Single Cylinder Research Engines & Compact Test Bed

For development of engines, components, alternative fuels and lubes; with transparent access into the combustion chamber. Compact test bed solution and peripherals.

AVL Approach

Working with our single cylinder research engines offers the significant advantage that the prospects of success are tested under realistic engine conditions long before new concepts are applied to the full engine.


Benefits at a Glance

  • Engine versions from small passenger car to heavy duty truck engine size
  • Modular design concept allows easy conversion into customer specific engine versions
  • Versatile GDI cylinder head with highest flexibility in tumble and injector installations
  • Optical top-works for application of modern laser supported measuring techniques
  • Truck size single cylinder engines for max. combustion peak firing pressures > 300 bar
