Modeling Diesel Combustion in a Pre-chamber and Main Chamber 2004-01-2968

Three-dimensional numerical simulations of a diesel-fueled engine with a pre-chamber located in the cylinder head and a bowl in the piston were performed. The study considers the effect of diesel combustion in the pre-chamber on turbulence generation and hence fuel-air mixing and combustion in the piston-bowl. Diesel fuel was injected directly into the pre-chamber and the piston bowl at different times. In order to better determine the effect of pre-chamber combustion on the main chamber combustion, various pre-chamber injection timings were considered. The results show that pre-chamber combustion caused the average cylinder pressure to increase by up to 20% in some cases.
