Thanks

The authors wish to thank the Flemish agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT Vlaanderen) for financially supporting this work. Many thanks go also to all the people inside, but also outside ABC, who worked on this project. We have seen an enthusiastic team which is motivated and worked with competence to make a successful new D36 engine series.
