Transportation of Liquid Fuel Droplets in the Pulsative Air Flow Within the S.I. Engine Intake Manifold 810497

An extensive amount of research has been carried out by various authors on the entrainment of fuel droplets in a steady air flow, in order to understand the transportation of droplet fuel in the spark-ignition engine intake manifold system. However, the utility of this type of steady state model is very limited when applied to the real engine where the air flow is highly pulsative. The present work develops a theoretical model of the flow of fuel droplets entrained in a non-steady air flow which requires the solution of a set of unsteady one-dimensional two phase flow equations by a numerical technique. This model is then applied to a single-cylinder spark-ignition engine fitted with both intake and exhaust manifold systems and also a carburettor.
