Abstract

The overall objectives of the European collaborative research programme are to develop a documented and validated code for computation of fuel sprays (typically diesel oil and gasoline) in reciprocating engines, which can be incorporated into a global 3D engine combustion code, to investigate the spray behaviour in real or simulated engine conditions (high pressure and high temperature) and to prepare a database for model development and validation. The engine model is used to support the design of more efficient engines and thus conserve energy resources and reduce harmful effects on the environment.
