Hi every body,

I have a problem with a case for coldFlow in an internal combustion engine (sonicTurbDyMEngineFoam )....the exhaust valve opens early (about 0.005 (s) ).Can any one help me????
How do I correct it???

thanks,
Sasan

Greetings Sasan,

Can you please provide more information? The reason I ask is because you're not providing enough information, as indicated in this thread: How to give enough info to get help

Best regards,
Bruno

PS: don't mind about the other post with strange characters, it was just a spammer...

Hi wyldckat ,
Thank you very much.
I am running a case that it simulates the cold flow in an internal combustion engine.
The solver is sonicTurbDyMEngineFoam.The rotational velocity is (rpm=1500), So the total time for a cycle of the engine is 0.08(s).I expect that the exhaust valve opens at 0.06(s)
but when I plot the mass flow versus time at the exhaust port I saw that the exhaust valve opened at 0.055(s).How do I can correct this problem???please any one help me....

The engineGeometry is as below :

The exhaust will open when the lift exhaust valve lift exceeds 0.0025 as specified in your dictionary.
So it depends on your valve lift profile.

Thanks for your reply peter,

Can you give me any sources about describtion of minimum valve lift and valve lift profile??
Can you explain them??

thanks,
Sasan.
