Numerical Simulation of In-Cylinder Particulate Matter Formation in Diesel Combustion by CFD Coupled with Chemical Kinetics Model 2019-01-2277

A reduced chemical kinetic model of diesel fuel, which can be applied to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation coupled with detailed chemistry using the CONVERGE software, is developed to simulate the particulate matter (PM) formation process. We analyzed the influence of varying intake oxygen concentrations and fuel composition on the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and soot formation processes. When the intake oxygen concentration was decreased, no significant difference was observed in PAH formation associated with soot formation, and the soot mass generated after the peak was high. When the fuel contained high levels of aromatics and naphthene, the PAH and soot formation mass increased. These tendencies were in good agreement with experimental results [1].
