Correlation between Numeric Simulation and Experimental Results on Intake Manifold Development 2009-36-0274
Intake manifolds have an important function on pollutants emission, which physical characteristics like regular air pressure loss and difference among runners are some factors that influences on performance and fuel consumption. To a fast development of new intake manifolds which find current targets, is necessary to use computational methods. In this case CFD was used to reduce some intermediate prototypes. However it is mandatory consider that models need adjustment and correlation with actuality to be good tools. This paper shows numeric simulations and experimental results from some manifolds, correlating and validating about several features, attributing so some confidence to model.
