Abstract

As discussed in the part I of this paper, 3D models represent a useful tool for a detailed description of the mean and turbulent flow fields inside the engine cylinder. 3D results are utilized to develop and validate a 0D phenomenological turbulence model, sensitive to the variation of operative parameters such as valve phasing, valve lift, engine speed, etc. In part II of this paper, a 0D phenomenological combustion model is presented, as well. It is based on a fractal description of the flame front and is able to sense each of the fuel properties, the operating conditions (air-to-fuel ratio, spark advance, boost level) and the combustion chamber geometry. In addition, it is capable to properly handle different turbulence levels predicted by means of the turbulence model presented in the part I. The turbulence and combustion models are included, through user routines, in the commercial software GT-Power". With reference to a small twin-cylinder VVA turbocharged engine, the turbulence/combustion model, once properly tuned, is finally used to calculate in-cylinder pressure traces, rate of heat release and overall engine performance at full load operations and brake specific fuel consumption at part load, as well. An excellent agreement between numerical forecasts and experimental evidence is obtained.
