Non-Replicated Factorial Experimental Design and its Use in the Analysis of SI Engine Simulation 2004-01-1459
Non-replicated factorial experiment is a kind of specific experiment, which can analyze factorial experiment with no replicates. This property makes it a useful analytical tool to cooperate with engine simulation for the analysis of engine performance. In the article we use this technique to explore the effects of valve timing variable on engine performance in an SI engine simulation. Results drawn from the analysis can help to give us a better understanding of the mechanism of valve timing.
