A Detailed Two-Dimensional Numerical Study of Spark Ignition Including Ionization 2002-01-1110

In this work, the spark-ignition (SI) of a methane/air mixture contained in a constant-volume chamber is investigated by numerical simulations. A cylinder-shaped vessel filled with a methane/air mixture containing two electrodes is used as simulation model. The impact of an electrical discharge at the electrodes on the surrounding gas is simulated, with detailed treatment of the ignition process involvig chemical kinetics, transport phenomena in the gas-phase and electrodynamical modeling of the interaction between spark and fuel/air mixture. For the calculations, a 2D-code to simulate the early stages of flame development, shortly after the breakdown discharge, has been developed. Computational results are shown for ignition of a methane air-mixture.
