  • Examples MWB-1: Reduced mechanism for gasoline combustion and pollutants formation at engine conditions
    A number of processes take place in SI engines: spark ignition, turbulent flame propagation, NOx and PM formation, knock. Every process is sensitive to the combustion chemistry. In modeling studies these chemistry effects should be captured as accurate as possible. Recently detailed chemical mechanisms of PRF combustion were developed to provide this capability. The only issue is how to use these huge chemical mechanisms in full-scale CFD simulations.
    This example shows, how Mechanism Workbench software can be used to efficiently reduce the size of the detailed chemical mechanism for efficient SI engine combustion simulations without loss in overall accuracy of predictions for target combustion characteristics.
