    Keywords : PPC; in-cylinder flow structures; Combustion diagnostics; Gasoline; Gasoline-Ethanol; Multiple Injection; Stratification Level;

    Abstract : The diesel engine is one of the most economic power sources and is therefore used in a range of technical solutions. The low fuel consumption combined with high engine performance makes it attractive for transportation vehicles. READ MORE

  3. 3. Large Eddy Simulation of Turbulent Flow and Combustion in HCCI Engines

    Author : Rixin Yu; Strömningsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turbulent combustion; Numerical methods.; LES; Temperature inhomogeneity; HCCI combustion; In-cylinder flow;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with numerical simulations of the turbulent combustion process in Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engines. An accurate and computationally efficient Large Eddy Simulation (LES) model was developed and used throughout this thesis to investigate the development of in-cylinder turbulence, temperature stratification, onset of auto-ignition, and development of the reaction fronts.
