The Case for CFD: Uncovering the Science Behind Internal Combustion Engine Phenomenon

Posted by | Posted on:

Internal combustion engines are ruling power generation applications even today, and improvising them to churn out every slice of power is still an area of research for the engineering community.

Combustion Phenomenon Using CFD

There are many things one can learn about the internal combustion engine through physical tests, such as heating and cooling phenomena, its behavior during vehicle acceleration, maximum power generating capability, torque, fuel consumption, and so on.

However, physical tests have their limitations and are not capable enough to assess the combustion process comprehensively. Although there are several optical engine technologies, which allow an engineer to visualize what’s happening inside the engine cylinder, they do have their own complexities. Their configurations are limited, and they are also highly expensive methods that negatively affect research budgets.
