Numerical models for the prediction of diesel engine spray development; combustion and emission formation will be developed. A wide range of engine operation conditions will be covered: effects caused by injection rate history, heat transfer and by exhaust gas re-circulation (EGR) will all be taken into account. Both passenger car and truck engines will be studied. Sub-models will be coded by model developers with a well-defined interface to basic CFD codes and will, whenever possible, work independently of a particular CFD code. Validation of the models will be done in carefully designed experiments in high-pressure diesel combustion chambers as well as in well-defined engine experiments. The work to implement and supply models in engine CFD codes will be out by participating automotive companies. The CFD code will be the one presently used for engine combustion applications within the company.
