Volumetric efficiency modeling of a four stroke IC engine
Volumetric efficiency, one of the most important engine performance parameters, is influenced by several engine parameters such as valve timing, valve lift, intake and exhaust runner length, and intake and exhaust pressure. To explore how these parameters impact volumetric efficiency, a 1D unsteady thermal fluid analysis is performed to determine the instantaneous cylinder pressure and the mass flow rate through the intake and exhaust valves during the intake and exhaust processes. In addition to a MATLAB implementation, a GT-Power model is also developed for validation. A synthetic intake ...
