Computer Aided Design Package for Diesel Engine Manifold System 790277
An interactive computer program for predicting the performance of a total engine system is described. The facilities include the basic design of the valve time-area diagrams, starting from various cam profiles, wave action effects in inlet and exhaust manifolds and turbocharger matching. The program is accessed via visual display units (VDUs) and its interactive nature takes many activities from the realm of the research department into that of the design department. The results obtained from the program are validated by comparison with a well-known more sophisticated wave action program.
