Introduction to FORTE
During this event the presenter will demonstrate how design engineers can use the new FORTE CFD Package to get quick and accurate predictions of engine behavior and emissions across the broadest range of fuels with scientifically proven fuel models. Cut your Time-to-Solution while designing cleaner burning engines using the latest combustion science.

Description:

A consistent failing of current computational fluid dynamics 
(CFD) codes, as cited by the industry, is that they  cannot 
be relied on to predict values or even to project accurate 
trends of critical combustion behaviors such as ignition, 
flame propagation, and emissions. Traditional approaches 
have historically been "good enough" because the fluid-
mixing effects dominated the chemical kinetics effects in 
predicting engine performance.  However, new, high-
efficiency, low-emissions designs present new technical 
challenges that are highly influenced by fuel chemistry. 
What proved to be good enough for the design of yesterday's 
engines is insufficient for today's designs. 


During this event the presenter will demonstrate how design 
engineers can use the new FORTE CFD Package to get quick 
and accurate predictions of engine behavior and emissions 
across the broadest range of fuels with scientifically 
proven fuel models.  Cut your Time-to-Solution while 
designing cleaner burning engines using the latest 
combustion science.


In this seminar we will demonstrate how to use FORTE to 
simulate both Compression Ignition and Spark Ignition 
engines.  We will also describe FORTE's advanced liquid 
spray models that dramatically reduce the need for excessive 
tuning or increased run times to improve accuracy.  We will 
also demonstrate how FORTE can be used to investigate 
advanced dual fuel combustion using micro-pilot injections 
of liquid fuel.


Who should attend:

- Internal Combustion Engine Design Engineers 

- Alternative Fuel Engine Designers

- Low Emissions Technology Designers 

- Project Managers
