Benefits of this Project

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.

What will you do in this project?

Step 1 - Geometry clean up

Step 2 - Computational mesh setup

Step 3 - Apply Boundary Conditions and Run the Simulation

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

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.
