hi, its been a 3 months i'm trying to mesh the bowl in piston combustion chamber of ic engine.. the geometry consists of inlet valve, cylinder wall and offset piston bowl and.. its a moving and deforming mesh problem. the clearance volume between cylinder head and piston is 1.5 mm and it can also be increased till 5mm.i got the initial mesh but it is having very less quality ( 4 percent and orthogonality angle of 1.2 deg.) so, can u plz tell me if its possible to have good quality mesh for this geometry in ICEM CFD or is there any other approch to mesh it. i want the mesh to deform from top dead center to bottom dead center i.e. from clearnce volume of 1.5mm to 117.5 mm. i'll very grateful for your suggestion.. thank u be happy regards chetan M.

Hi,

It is always possible to improve mesh quality.

For the expanding part of the mesh make sure you only use extruded elements (hex and prisms) as tets and pyramids have terrible quality when stretched and squished.

You may wish to look at my PhD thesis on IC engine modelling: <A HREF="http://hdl.handle.net/2100/248</A">http://hdl.handle.net/2100/248</A>.

This thread is 5 years old so I doubt Chetan is around any more. But some silly people like me are still around

Have a look at my thesis (the link is above), or use the new IC engine template in Workbench V14. It uses Fluent as the CFD code but has much of the setup in a template so would be by far the easiest way to set things up.

Look in the ANSYS Workbench help/tutorials. It is there. (You will need an ANSYS community log in)

Well, you get what you pay for, don't you?

Honestly, why bother with cracked software? ANSYS has student versions available at little cost. And I think you can get access to the site from that. Alternately for students you can get access through your university's license.

Sorry, I do not down load stuff for people. Have a look on the community site under tutorials. It is there. Note it is a tutorial for ANSYS V14.

Hi ghorrocks,
Please can you tell me if I can use Fluent v.14 to move base of the cylinder for exmaple without UDF ( my geometry is Heart Pump and it is similar to the piston and I want to move the pusher plate) can use option(in-cylinder) if u can help me with some tutorial about that.
Regards
Mohammed
