Title: 2018 FEARCE Development: A Robust and Accurate Engine Modeling Software

Abstract

Research and development of Fast, Easy, Accurate and Robust Continuum Engineering (FEARCE, formerly KIVA-hpFE)for turbulent reactive and multiphase flow,particularly as related to engine modeling,is relevant to the DOE Vehicle Technologies Office efforts at addressing national energy security. Less dependence on petroleum products leads to greater energy security. By Environmental Protection Agency standards, some vehicles are now reaching 42–50 mpg mark. These are conventional gasoline engines. With continued investment and research into new technical innovations, the potential exists to save more than 4 million barrels of oil per day or approximately 200 to 400 dollars million per day. This would be a significant decrease in emissions and use of petroleum and a very large stimulus to the U.S. economy.
