Abstract

The aim of the research described here is to produce a computer program, which is capable of computing unsteady 3-dimensional turbulent air motion and heat transfer in the combustion chambers of reciprocating engines under motoring conditions. The computer program will be able to treat a limited but useful range of geometries. The reliability and accuracy of the code is being evaluated by comparison with experimental data generated as part of this research and extracted from other sources in the literature. The computer program uses novel numerical techniques to provide both an accurate, high resolution, representation of complex geometries and economy in the use of computer time and storage space. The experimental data are of high quality and comprise measured values of mean and rms velocities around the inlet valves, in addition to the flow in the main cylinder region.
