Abstract

A phenomenological model has been developed to describe the behaviour of barrel (or tumble) swirl and turbulence during the compression stroke of a reciprocating engine. Parametric studies are described which illustrate the effect of engine geometry and flow conditions on the development of swirl and turbulence in the chamber.
