What will you do in this project?

In this project, you will work on a Port Fuel Injected (PFI) engine. You will do the following in this project,

  • Using the provided CAD geometry, you will first perform surface cleanup 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 calculate combustion efficiency, Volumetric efficiency, Compression ratio.
  • Analyse extremely important plots like HRR, IHR, In-cylinder pressure and temperature

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

Multi-Dimensional Simulation of a Port-Fuel Injection Engine using CONVERGE CFD

In this project, you will be importing the geometry provided to you and clean up the geometry first. Then, you will be setting up the case by providing appropriate boundary conditions. To capture the key events that happens inside an engine i.e spraying of fuel, spark ignition, flame propagation, you will be modeling combustion, turbulence, spark and spray. You will also get an exposure to an extremely strong features of Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR), Fixed embedding as these will help you capture the flow physics accurately with optimized cell count. Finally, you will post process the results in PARAVIEW and look for all the key events that happens inside the engine cylinder. 

  • Understanding the No-Hydrodynamic and Full-Hydrodynamic solvers
  • Understanding the concept of EVENTS and disconnected triangles
  • Line plotting and Pen & Paper calculations to understand the performance of the engine
