Multidimensional Combustion Simulation and Analytical Solution of Wall Heat Conduction in DI Diesel Engine

M.H. Djavareshkian, F. Talati, A. Ghasemi and S. Sohrabi    

Abstract: In this research, combustion process in the combustion chamber of a DI diesel engine is simulated. Afterwards, results obtained from the multidimensional simulation of the combustion process are used in analytical solution of the heat conduction in cylinder wall. An eddy break-up combustion model and a diesel auto-ignition model were implemented to simulate the ignition and combustion process. All the simulations were carried out by the use of FIRE CFD tool. Numerical results were validated via experimental data for OM_355 DI diesel engine for mean cylinder pressure. The results show that there have been good agreements between experimental data and the CFD calculations. The research demonstrated that the combination of multidimensional CFD simulation and analytical methods is useful for diesel engine wall heat transfer modeling. Effect of cylinder wall material, insulation material and thickness were studied in order to obtain lower heat rejection from the combustion chamber. Using cast iron instead of alluminium for cylinder material, using insulation and increasing the insulation thickness resulted in lower outer wall temperature and heat flux.
