Applying an Extended Flamelet Model for a Multiple Injection Operating Strategy in a Common-Rail DI Diesel Engine 2009-01-0720

Subject of this work is the recently introduced extended Representative Interactive Flamelet (RIF) model for multiple injections.
First, the two-dimensional laminar flamelet equations, which can describe the transfer of heat and mass between two-interacting mixture fields, are presented. This is followed by a description of the various mixture fraction and mixture fraction variance equations that are required for the RIF model extension accounting for multiple injection events. Finally, the modeling strategy for multiple injection events is described: Different phases of combustion and interaction between the mixture fields resulting from different injections are identified. Based on this, the extension of the RIF model to describe any number of injections is explained.
Simulation results using the extended RIF model are compared against experimental data for a Common-Rail DI Diesel engine that was operated with three injection pulses. Simulated pressure curves, heat release rates, and pollutant emissions are found to be in good agreement with corresponding experimental data. For the pilot injection and the main or post injection, respectively, different ignition phenomena are pointed out and the influence of the scalar dissipation rate on these ignition phenomena is detailly investigated.
