What will you do in this project?

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,

  • Using the provided CAD geometry and data file, you will be creating a sector in Converge CFD software.
  • Setup the case in Converge CFD software.
  • Run the simulation in parallel on command line window (CYGWIN).
  • Visualize the results in PARAVIEW, make some hand calculations and conclude which piston is giving the best performance.

  • Geometry clean up and sector creation
  • Providing boundary conditions and setting up the entire case
  • Running the simulation in parallel on command line window (CYGWIN)
  • Post-processing using PARAVIEW

Project Highlights

Pre-requisites
  • Must be comfortable with CONVERGE.
  • Need basic background in CFD and Combustion.
  • Need a basic knowledge on how use command line window.
Work with Multiple Tools
  • Working on Converge CFD software to setup the case.
  • Using command line window (CYGWIN) to run simulations.
  • Post process the results using PARAVIEW.
  • Use of MS - WORD or GOOGLE DOC to create a report.

Emission characterization on a CAT3410 engine

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.

  • Sector creation and providing boundary conditions
  • Running the complicated and heavy case in CYGWIN on multiple cores
  • Post processing the results in PARAVIEW
  • Line plotting and pen & Paper calculations to understand the performance of the engine
