CFD calculations significantly help to understand complex physical processes. This results in findings that are reflected in the development of new products in the long term.
The calculations performed here lead to improved powertrain efficiencies because a new combustion chamber shape is developed.
For this purpose, our engineering team has analyzed in detail the flame-wall interaction of a spark ignited internal combustion engine that is to be used in a hybrid vehicle in the further course of development.
The following example shows the mixture formation for the port injection operating point.
The following video shows the flame propagation. All simulations have been performed with STARCCM+ and the In-Cylinder Solutions plug-in.
A funded project will help us to further investigate different fuels in this project (for example E-Methanol).
