Multi-Dimensional Engine Modeling (Part 1 of 4)
(Session Code: PFL120)

Room 140 B  9:30 a.m.

The spectrum of papers solicited for this session reflect the truly multi-disciplinary nature of the field of Multi-Dimensional Engine Modeling. The session covers advances in the development and application of models and tools involved in multi-dimensional engine modeling. This includes advances in chemical kinetics, combustion and spray modeling, turbulence, heat transfer, mesh generation, and approaches targeting improved computational efficiency. Papers employing multi-dimensional modeling to gain a deeper understanding of processes related to turbulent transport, transient phenomena, and chemically reacting, two-phase flows are also encouraged.

Organizers - Hardo Barths, General Motors; Sarah Diakhaby, Computational Dynamics, Ltd.; Allen David Gosman, CD-adapco; David Gosman, CD-adapco UK; Carl Hergart, Caterpillar Inc.
