Abstract

The flow inside a simplified one-stroke engine with squared cross section has been calculated with compressible Large Eddy Simulation (LES) using our code SPARC and compared with the measurements on the same geometry. The one-stroke engine has a turbulence generator, which can ether generate a tumble or homogenous turbulence depending on the configuration. By waiting different amount of time after the turbulence generation process a variable turbulence level can be achieved. During the up going motion of the piston the turbulent fuel mixture is compressed and ignited by a row of spark plugs. The simulation has been using more then 8 million points for the space discretization. A space conservation law was used to calculate the grid motion with Euler-Lagrange technique. The mesh was refined in the shear layers and close to the wall so that y+ < 1 results almost everywhere. A comparison between Miles (monotonically integrated large eddy simulation) approach and conventional subgrid scale modelling (dynamic Smagorinsky) showed very similar solutions. Mean and fluctuating velocities at TDC are compared with available experimental findings.
