Simulation of the combustion-chamber of a spark-ignition engine.
 
Hello,

I am trying to simulate the combustion-chamber of a spark-ignition (dual spark), one-cylinder ethanol engine and am looking forward to some advice as far as the procedure to be adopted is concerned. I am not particularly experienced in FLUENT (I am using FLUENT 14.0 at the moment).

Two questions in particular:
1) Why can the Spark Ignition Model not be assigned under the turbulent models? For now, I can find it available only under the laminar models.

2) When I try setting up the fuel-injectors, Ethanol isn't apparently listed in the FLUENT. What can I do about it?

Thanks in advance!
