MINNOX Report Summary

Project ID: ENK6-CT-2001-00530
Funded under: FP5-EESD
Country: Austria

CFD software capable of simulating heat transfer and simultaneously treating the three-dimensional temperature fields in the combustion chamber, the engines structure and in the coolant jacket

The CFD code FIRE" is a multi purpose simulation software which can be used for different kind of applications. For the simulation of engines FIRE" provides special modules for the handling of the mesh movement as well as a number of mathematical models for the treatment of effects as fuel injection or combustion.

The solution algorithm is based on the well known SIMPLE (Semi IMplicit Pressure Linked Equations) procedure. The code can handle computational cells with an arbitrary topology.

Within the actual version of the program new sub-models from the ongoing project will be implemented. These sub-models make it possible to simulate the heat transfer on a higher level of accuracy then it has to be done up to now.
