  1. 1. Engine Encapsulation for Increased Fuel Efficiency of Road Vehicles

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Blago Minovski; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; coupled simulations; powertain cooling systems; warm-up; 1D simulations; thermal engine encapsulation; cool-down; fuel consumption; numerical analysis; 3D CFD simulations;

    Abstract : Thermal engine encapsulation is an increasingly popular design choice, which insulates the engine from the external environment and retains heat in the engine after it is turned off. This decelerates motor cool-down and increases the probability for high initial temperature at a subsequent engine start, resulting in shorter warm-up and reduced friction between engine parts.

  2. 2. Coupled Simulations of Cooling and Engine Systems for Unsteady Analysis of the Benefits of Thermal Engine Encapsulation

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Blago Minovski; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Oil system; Cooling system; Drive cycle; CFD simulations; Fuel consumption; Engine encapsulation; 1D simulations;

    Abstract : A well-designed engine encapsulation can extend engine cool-down time significantly - on the order of 500 - 700%. This is expected to have a sensitive influence on the fuel consumption due to the increased probability for high oil temperatures at the following engine start, reduced length of the initial warm-up period and consequently, reduced friction losses.

  3. 3. 1D engine simulation of a turbocharged SI engine with CFD computation on components

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Ulrica Renberg; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 1D modeling; CFD modeling; turbine efficiency; pipe flow; turbocharged engine; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Techniques that can increase the SI- engine efficiency while keeping the emissions very low is to reduce the engine displacement volume combined with a charging system. Advanced systems are needed for an effective boosting of the engine and today 1D engine simulation tools are often used for their optimization. READ MORE

  4. 4. Double Compression-Expansion Engine Concepts : Experimental and simulation study of a split-cycle concept for improved brake efficiency

    University dissertation from Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Nhut Lam; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Split-cycle; high efficiency; 1D-modeling; Engine experimetns; heavy-duty engine;

    Abstract : The four-stroke engine was invented by Nikolaus Otto during the second half of the 19th century. Although a lot of technological improvements have been made over the years, the operating principle with four-strokes remains the same. The need and desire of engines with even higher fuel-efficiency is a motivation to study alternative engine concepts. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optimization of Chemical Kinetic Mechanisms and Numerical Simulations of Industrial Gas Turbine Burners

    University dissertation from Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Abdallah Abou-Taouk; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAS-SST; LES; Gas Turbine Combustion; Swirling Flow; Global Mechanism; Finite Rate Chemistry; Partially Premixed Flames; Chemistry Reduction; RANS;

    Abstract : Increasing demands on environmentally friendly energy conversion indicate that pollutants need to be reduced. Computational Fluid Dynamics is efficiently used today in turbulent reaction flow simulations to gain a deeper understanding of the combustion process and consequently be able to improve combustor design and reduce emissions.
