Static CFD analysis of a novel valve design for internal combustion engines
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this work CFD was used to simulate the flow through a novel valve design for internal combustion engines. CFD is numerical method for simulating the behaviour of systems involving flow processes. A FEM was used for solving the equations.
Literature on the topic was studied to gain an understanding of the performance limiters on the Internal combustion engine. This understanding was used to set up models that better would mimic physical phenomena compared to previous studies. The models gave plausible results as to fluid velocities and in-cylinder flow patterns.
Comsol Multiphysics 4.1 was used for the computations.
