Default combustion and moving mesh
Posts: n/a

i have an idea and i would like to know if this is possible to simulate. i would like to simulate the ignition in a internal combustion engine and after the ignition to have the surface of the piston to move as the pressure of the gases press it. i know the fuel and the other parameters and also the force that the piston requires to move.

any idea???

Yes, this can be done. It is a serious simulation and will require a lot of work to get accurate. Modelling the flows in IC engines is difficult enough, and adding combustion adds a whole new dimension to it.

You may be interested to look at my PhD thesis where I used CFX4 to model an IC engine:

we all in this site love our job so every minute that we spend is worth to us... so i am on holiday and i have to time to create this simulation. i will try to do that perfect and i will put it to my magazine, of course i will mention you as the person who everyday helps us with cfx.
