Model for Kinetic Formation of CO Emissions in Internal Combustion Engines 2003-01-3138
This work has as an objective the development of a numerical model to calculate the kinetic formation rate of carbon monoxide in spark-ignited internal combustion engines. The model is added to a computer program that simulates the cycle of spark ignition engines, to calculate the exhaust concentration of carbon monoxide emissions. The model is validated through experimental data from a single-cylinder research engine. Comparisons with calculated equilibrium concentration of carbon monoxide confirm that this pollutant should be modeled according to the theory of kinetic formation, for a better approach to exhaust measured values.
