About this item

This guide introduces the use of basic thermodynamic engine cycle simulations in engine development and results for spark-ignition, internal combustion engines. After brief discussion of the role of simulations in designing and understanding internal combustion engines, it provides overviews of engine cycle simulations and engines and their operation, including the fundamentals, terminology, components, operation, and performance parameters. Chapters then cover the properties of working fluids; thermodynamic formulations; items and procedures for solutions to the energy equations, including cylinder volumes, fuel burning rates, heat transfer, flow rates, friction, and other sub-models; basic results using the simulation for pressures, temperatures, species, and residual fractions; performance results for power, torque, thermal efficiency, mean effective pressure, and inlet pressure, speed, load, combustion variables, compression ratio, exhaust gas recirculation, and combustion timing; aspects needed to complete second law assessments of engines; and case studies of other engine combustion processes, heat release and phasing, cylinder heat transfer, fuels, oxygen-enriched air, overexpanded engines, nitric oxide emissions, and high-efficiency engines. Examples and case studies are based on an automotive engine. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
