    BASTRA combustion engines:
  • Gasexchange 2/4-stroke

    4-stroke and 2-stroke engine efficiency is in function of the gasexchange layout and the scavenging process. Intake and exhaust system must perfectly work together with the ports timing in order to achieve best volumetric efficiency and HC trapping of the...
  • Valvetrain

    Four stroke engine performance is strongly dependent on valve time-area and valve timing. The physical limits of the valvetrain are determined by the kinematic and dynamic of the involved mechanics and the material properties. BASTRA is able to analyse,...
  • Combustion

    The request for lower exhaust emission and reduced fuel consumption of combustion engines has become a global issue. In order to meet future legislation limits combustion design and control of combustion process has become necessary. BASTRA is working o...
  • Cooling

    The engine carburetion and exhaust emissions are related to the cooling efficiency. Engine fuel consumption and exhaust emission level can be improved with optimized cooling system. Our project work considers the complete thermal engine aspect as well a...
  • Lubrication

    The engine lubrication is responsible for internal friction, heat transfer, exhaust emission level and engine lifetime. Nowadays, engine internal friction has become an important issue concerning the fuel consumption. Our job is to optimize the engine l...
  • Carburetion

    The calibration of combustion engines has become a complex procedure, due to the numerous degrees of freedom given by the ECU controls. Fueling efficiency, exhaust emissions and engine performance are in function of fuel injection, ignition timing, EGR r...
  • Noise Vibration Harshness

    Our experts in NVH engineering make sure that engines/vehicle noise and vibrations will be optimized by analysis and design of: airborne-noise structure-born noise (linear & non-linear) sound quality design of intake & exha...
  • Testing

    Our testing department is equipped with certificated state-of-art test facilities. Nevertheless, we are developing test instruments and procedures inhouse in order to meet special requirements of our clients and to validate the quality and efficiency of...
