Knowledge on 3D simulations for HCCI combustion mode

3-D simulations for HCCI mode were performed to support the development and optimisation of HD HCCI concepts. The code used for this simulations corresponds to the IFP state of the art for HCCI combustion. The simulations allow the selection of best combustion chamber geometries and adapted spray nozzles. Influence of injection strategies is evaluated for their influence on performance and pollutant emissions. NOx and particulate level and trends are in good accordance with engine results demonstrating the reliability of the models for HCCI combustion.
