  1. 1. Simulations of compressible flows associatedwith internal combustion engines

    Author : Olle Bodin; Laszlo Fuchs; Mihai Mihaescu; Michael Leschziner; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LES; Gas exhange; exhaust port; exhaust manifold; POD; DMD; exhaust; LES; Gasväxling; avgasport; avgasgrenrör; POD; DMD;

    Abstract : Vehicles with internal combustion (IC) engines fueled by hydrocarbon compoundshave been used for more than 100 years for ground transportation.During these years and in particular the last decade, the environmental aspectsof IC engines have become a major political and research topic.

  2. 2. Numerical Studies of Flow and AssociatedLosses in the Exhaust Port of a Diesel Engine

    Author : Yue Wang; Laszlo Fuchs; Mihai Mihaescu; Angelo Onorati; KTH; []
    Keywords : Internal Combustion Engine; Exhaust flow; Exhaust Valve; Exhaust Port; Large Eddy Simulation; Valve and Piston Motion; Total Pressure Losses; Energy Losses; Discharge coefficient; Flow Losses; Flow structures; Air Flow Bench; Engine-like Conditions; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : In the last decades, the focus of internal combustion engine development has moved towards more efficient and less pollutant engines. In a Diesel engine, approximately 30-40% of the energy provided by combustion is lost through the exhaust gases. The exhaust gases are hot and therefore rich of energy. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Agglomeration of Particles in Exhaust Gases

    Author : Ghulam Majal; Mihai Mihaescu; Mats Åbom; Mikael Karlsson; Lisa Prahl Wittberg; Henrik Ström; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multiphase flow; DES; particulate matter; exhaust after treatment; particle agglomeration; Lagrangian particle tracking; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : Particulate emissions from road transportation are known to have an adverse impact on human health as well the environment. As the effects become more palpable, stricter legislation have been proposed by regulating bodies. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Gas Dynamics of Exhaust Valves

    Author : Marcus Winroth; P. Henrik Alfredsson; Ramis Örlü; Knud Erik Meyer; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Exhaust valve; poppet valve; dynamic valve; engine modeling; discharge coefficient; Avgasventil; rörlig ventil; motorsimulering; utsläppskoefficient; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : With increasing effects of global warming, efforts are made to make transportationin general more fuel efficient. When it comes to internal combustion engines,the most common way to improve fuel efficiency is through ‘downsizing’. Downsizingmeans that a smaller engine (with lower losses and less weight) performsthe task of a larger engine. READ MORE

  5. 5. High Temperature Corrosion of Cast Irons and Steels

    Author : Frédéric Tholence; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : high temperature corrosion; cast steel; austenitic stainless steel; SiMo; cast iron; oxidation; exhaust gases; Ni-resist; LCF; ferritic stainless steel;

    Abstract : During the last decades, tougher competition and stiffer government policies have forced the automotive industry into a race for safer, cleaner and more fuel-efficient vehicles at low cost. As a consequence, exhaust systems should resist to increased working temperatures. READ MORE
