  • The performance of internal combustion stratified-charge engines is highly dependent on the in-cylinder fuel-air mixing processes occurring in these engines. Current research concerning the in-cylinder airflow characteristics of rotary and piston engines is presented. Results showing the output of multidimensional models, laser velocimetry measurements and the application of a holographic optical element are described. Models which simulate the four-stroke cycle and seal dynamics of rotary engines are also discussed.
  • Although the cost of the petroleum crude has not increased much within the last decade, the drive to develop internal combustion engines is still continuing. The basic motivation of this drive is to reduce both emissions and costs. Recent developments in computer chip production and information management technology have opened up new applications in engine controls and monitoring. The development of new information is continuing at a rapid pace. Some of these research and development results were presented at the 1996 Spring Technical Conference of the ASME Internal Combustion Engine Division in Youngstown, Ohio, April 21--24, 1996. The papers presentedmore » covered various aspects of the design, development, and application of compression ignition and spark ignition engines. The conference was held at the Holiday Inn Metroplex Complex and hosted by Altronic Incorporated of Girard, Ohio. The written papers submitted to the conference have been published in three conference volumes. Volume 2 includes the papers on the topics of engine design, engine systems, and engine user experience.« less

  • Multidimensional numerical models of internal combustion engine processes require closure approximations for the effective turbulent reaction rates for the reactive mixture. In this paper, an engineering level approach, called the ''Eddy-Burn-Rate'' model, is proposed which attempts to reconcile the multiscale effects of turbulence on flame propagation. Two rate limiting steps are considered: an entrainment or mixing step and a burn or microscale reaction step. The model treats mixing via a two-equation second order closure turbulence model and defines a time constant for the fuel oxidation reaction based on laminar flame consumption on the Taylor micro-scale. The Eddy-Burn Rate model ismore » evaluated against alternative turbulent reaction rate closure methods as well as data from two different combustion bombs.« less
  • Engine manufacturers continue to seek advancements in engine design to provide a more efficient product with minimal environmental impact and at competitive prices. Papers related to the Conference theme ``Advancements in Engine Design and Applications`` were presented at the 1996 Fall Technical Conference of the ASME Internal Combustion Engine Division. These papers address aspects of the design, development, or application of compression-ignition (diesel) or spark-ignition engines which relate to the above theme. This publication is Volume 4 of 5 volumes which contain the papers relating to the sessions on natural gas engines, combustion, emissions, and simulations. All papers were peer-reviewedmore » and followed the standard ASME publications practices.« less
