Database Constructions by LDA and PIV to Verify the Numerical Simulation of Gas Flows in the Cylinder of a Motored Engine 2009-28-0010

Air velocities in the cylinder of motored engine were measured by laser Doppler anemometer (LDA) and particle image velocimetry (PIV) to make the standard database that will be used for verification of the numerical simulation. A 4-stroke, 4-valve test engine with transparent cylinder was operated with engine speed of 600rpm. The velocities on that condition were measured individually in vertical- and swirl-direction. The distributions of mean- and RMS- velocities are obtained from the measured data. Flow velocity through the intake valve was also measured at the top of the cylinder. As the results, the flow structure by each crank angle can be clarified. The present data can be commonly used for some numerical research group of RC238 in JSME for verification of numerical simulation results. The effect of the tumble generation valve (TGV) is evaluated by velocity distributions.
