Optimise combustion chamber design – investigate flame wall interaction

CFD simulations support the understanding of the complex physical processes involved significantly. This leads to improved products long-term.

The simulations performed here lead to higher efficiencies of the powertrain due to a new combustion chamber design. We analyse the flame-wall interaction in detail for an internal combustion engine used in a hybrid vehicle application. 

Further investigations with different fuels are planned for future projects and the validation will be performed for various operating conditions.

The video shows the temperature distribution and the flame front propagation.
