  1. 1. Modeling of Diesel Fuel Spray Formation and Combustion in OpenFOAM

    Author : Anne Kösters; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Combustion; Break-up; OpenFOAM; PaSR; CFD; Diesel; VRFM; VSB2; Spray;

    Abstract : The formation, ignition, and combustion of fuel sprays are highly complex processes and the available models have various shortcomings. The development and application of multidimensional CFD models, that describe the different phenomena have rapidly increased through the use of commercial and public software (e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. LES stochastic modelling of cavitation with its applications in OpenFOAM

    Author : Boxiong Chen; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rayleigh-Plesset Equation; Cavitation; Modelling; Simulation; Eulerian Stochastic Field Method; OpenFOAM; Homogeneous Equilibrium Model;

    Abstract : Cavitation is a vaporization process that commonly happens in high-pressure injector nozzles nowadays. It has been shown by previous studies that cavitation has a significant influence on the subsequent atomization process, the quality of which would in turn heavily affect the process of combustion.

  3. 3. Simulation of Combustion and Mixture Formation for Gasoline Direct Injection Engine Application

    Author : Chen Huang; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VSB2; Reitz-KHRT; gasoline surrogate; LISA; sensitivity study.; Reitz-Diwakar; Trajectory collision; laminar flame speed; chemical kinetics; TAB; Rosin-Rammler; ignition delay; OpenFOAM; ethanol; O Rourke collision; SMD; hollow cone spray; liquid penetration;

    Abstract : The development and introduction of new engine technologies are primarily motivated by the need to comply with increasingly stringent emissions legislation and to reduce fuel consumption. One of the most important of these new engine technologies is direct gasoline injection, which is considered to be an important and cost-effective measure to meet both targets. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical Modelling of Fuel Injection and Stratified Turbulent Combustion in a Direct-Injection Spark-Ignition Engine Using an Open Source Code

    Author : Chen Huang; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hollow-cone spray; KHRT; liquid penetration; CFD; OpenFOAM; Flame Speed Closure FSC ; ignition delay; SMD; gasoline surrogate; laminar flame speed; presumed PDF; Spray-Guided Gasoline Direct Injection engine; chemical mechanism; modelling; premixed stratified turbulent combustion;

    Abstract : Stringent regulations on the emission of pollutants, especially carbon dioxide (CO2), necessitate the development of advanced combustion technologies. Gasoline direct injection (GDI) into the combustion chamber of a Spark Ignition (SI) engine is a combustion strategy that is widely recognized as having the potential to improve fuel efficiency of internal combustion engines for passenger cars.
