Advanced CFD for IC Engine Applications

0% EMI Option Available

Domain : Computational Fluid Dynamics

Pre-requisites : For Mechanical and Automotive Engineers

Introduction

A Quick Overview

Through this advanced course, you will learn the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) theory on internal flows with special focus on simulating the Engines (S.I Engines and C.I Engines). Students will be introduced to CONVERGE STUDIO which is used specifically for setting up the case for engines.


  • CONVERGE STUDIO: To setup the cases and providing BCs

  • CYGWIN/CMD: Command-line interface on Windows to run the simulation

  • PARAVIEW: Post-processing software (to post-process the results)


Working on CONVERGE STUDIO will help you study the inside workings of an engine, from fuel injection, compression, spark ignition to combustion and flame propagation. Converge has an added advantage of automated meshing that helps save time.


At the end of this course, you will be able to set up any internal flow problem, clean up any complicated geometry, and model turbulence, combustion, and spray. You will also learn the theory behind the concepts of turbulence (RANS), combustion, and spray.

COURSE SYLLABUS

In this module, you will learn how to set up a CFD simulation using CONVERGE CFD. You will be provided with step-by-step instructions on the following:

  • CAD import and cleanup

  • Decomposing the model into boundaries and volumetric regions

  • Inputting valve timing

  • Choosing turbulence and combustion models

  • Running the case in a parallel environment

  • Post-processing



In this module, you will learn surface preparation in complete detail. Specifically,


  • Setting up the piston motion profile

  • Boundary flagging

  • Setting up the intake and exhaust valves

In this module, you will learn the following concepts:

  • Initializing pressure, temperature, and species concentration in the intake, exhaust and fire deck regions

  • Disconnect triangles

  • Valve timing and the concept of minimum lift

  • Valve profile input

In this module, you will learn how turbulence is modelled and simulated in a state-of-the-art CFD solver. You will learn about the different classes of turbulence models and understand their merits and demerits. In this module, you will also learn about,


  • RANS approach to model turbulence

  • Comprehend the math involved behind RANS and its derivations


Learn theory on different types of turbulence models available (RNG k-ε, k-ω SST, etc.) and appreciate which model is suitable for what type of application

In this module, you will learn how the SAGE detailed chemical kinetics solver works. In addition to this, you will also learn how to use the Shell CTC combustion model.

To design efficient engines, one needs to have a firm grasp of emissions modelling. You will learn about the Hiroyasu soot model and the Zeldovich nox model and apply them in engine simulations.

Projects Overview

Steady and Transient Flow over a Throttle Body

The objective here is to simulate flow past a throttle body under steady state and transient conditions. Your task is to study the effect of the valve dynamics on key flow quantities.



Diesel Engine Characterization

In this project, you will run closed cycle simulations of the CAT3410 engine using two different piston bowls. You will be looking at the effect of piston bowl shape on the final solution.



Port Fuel Injection

  • Clean up complex CAD model using CONVERGE STUDIO

  • Assign proper boundary and initial conditions

  • Setup appropriate physical models (spray, turbulence, combustion, and emissions)

  • Running simulations in parallel

  • Runtime results visualization

  • Post-processing results

  • Creating cut views, iso-surfaces, images, and animations


You will also focus on analyzing the data obtained from your simulation using line plots. You can find an example below. Last but not least, there is a reason why CFD is called colourful fluid dynamics. Here are some visualizations that beautifully convey the complexities of the various physical phenomena that you can expect in an I.C Engine.


WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR ?

    The course that you studied in college was designed years ago and does not take into account the current market trends or what the industry expects from graduates. Our courses have been designed in consultation with industry experts and leading academicians. Skill-Lync courses are geared to help you find employment as soon as you complete the coursework. This is possible only because of the projects that you will complete as part of your curriculum, in your college you might have done one major and one minor project. But, each module in a Skill-Lync course has a corresponding project, and these projects are industry-oriented. Which means that if you were to look at the project that an engineer at a top OEM is working on, it will be similar to a Skill-Lync project, the only difference being the scale of the project. 


    Simply put - there's a world of a difference between what you have studied at your college and what you will get trained in when you study at Skill-Lync. 

    You will have an edge over your peers by working extensively on industry-relevant projects, practice on tools and software that will set you apart and help you in getting ahead of the competition. Along with this, when you enroll in a Skill-Lync course you will get access to the Skill-Lync Student Success Team - who will ensure that you get placed at the end of your course. They will help you polish your resume, and help you properly present your projects on your LinkedIn and other external pages. They will also scour for any opportunity that you might be qualified for and help you apply for it. After which they will help you train in all the possible variations of interview questions. Before the interview, you will also be trained in tool tests, in which your comprehension of all the tools that you have studied in the duration of the course will be cemented along with the underlying principles.
