In this project, you will setup the case for Diesel engine for different piston bowls i.e Open-W and Omega piston using CONVERGE CFD Software. You will be looking for core technical details such as spray penetration length, comparing HIROY SOOT and NOx emissions, flame propagation etc.
In this project, you will work on a CAT3410 diesel engine having different piston bowl shapes i.e Open-W and Omega piston. You will do the following in this project,
In this project, you will be setting up the case for Diesel Engine CAT3410 from scratch i.e creating a sector out of 360° full geometry, providing boundary conditions, setting up turbulence model, spray model, and combustion model in Converge CFD software. You will be making use of Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) technique to capture the flow physics accurately and then running this heavy case on multiple cores (i.e parallel processing) in command line window (CYGWIN) and finally post processing the results in PARAVIEW where you will be looking for the core technical details like spray penetration length, flame propagation, comparing HIROY SOOT and NOx for Open-W piston and Omega piston. You will also be doing some pen and paper calculations to calculate the thermal efficiency and based on above studies, you will make a conclusion which piston is giving the best performance. Also, you will understand how you can improve the performance of the one which is not the best comparatively.
Frequently Asked Questions
SKILL-LYNC projects are mapped closely with what industry expects. When you work on a SKILL-LYNC project and publish it in your profile, recruiters are automatically notified about your profile. Your project submissions are graded so that students can get critical feedback on your work
In this project, you will be setting up the complicated case for Port Fuel Injection (PFI) engine and will be simulating to capture key events such as injection of spray, spark ignition, flame propagation and finally the emissions.
In this project, the overview of how trade-off studies are performed in an automotive OEM to benchmark a product against its previous generation or another variant. And you will be using the GT-POWER tools to perform the optimization studies over the engine parameters. And the theory behind this operation is optimization algorithms and the final plots will give you the detailed insight of trade-off studies, which is already in practice in various leading automotive manufacturers
In this project you will be calibrating a detailed compression ignition & spark ignition + explicit engine model by observing the effects of engine operating parameters on emissions and the conversion efficiencies of catalysts, such as TWC [Three Way Cat Conn] and DOC-DPF-SCR with urea injector, on different pollutants.
In this project Adiabatic Flame Temperature(AFT) calculation will be performed using coding language Python and in-build Suite of Cantera. Cantera is an open-source suite of tools for problems involving chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and transport processes. So, the comparative analysis will be performed to compare the factors like time requirement, accuracy etc. The effect of number of carbon atoms on Adiabatic Flame Temperature will also be discussed.

Engineering students who are fresh out of college often struggle to meet the expectations of their employers. More often than not, this stems from a gap between the skills they learned in school and those that are required to make them competitive in the workplace. Skill-Lync, an edtech startup based out of Chennai, aims to bridge this gap.
Chennai-headquartered online learning startup Skill-Lync has launched a Masters course in Electric Vehicle Design and Simulation. The company says the new course is the first such curriculum in India, that focuses on electric vehicles. The fee of the EV course is around Rs 275,000, with the option of a full time or part-time duration. The startup provides job leading courses for Mechanical, Electrical and Civil Engineering students in India and across the world. With colleges shut and students looking to make the most of the time that they are at home the startup has fast-tracked the development of this program and releasing it amid Covid-19.
Skill-Lync started out as a YouTube channel to share engineering tips. Today, it is an online training course that caters to mostly non-software engineering students, which make up around 60 percent of the total engineers that graduate every year.
In an attempt to ensure that there is no hiatus in student education during the ongoing lockdown, Govt of India’s All India Council of Technical Education - NEAT announced partnership with Chennai based Edtech startup Skill-Lync. The global startup Skill-Lync is first-of-its-kind engineering technical education platform that provides job leading courses for Mechanical, Electrical and Civil Engineering students in India and across the world.
