Valve lift profile
Dear forumers,

I have some questions about valve lift profile:

How do I find a vale lift profile for a case?
Is there a specific valve lift profile for every engine????
Is there a specific function for that?

Of course the valve lift is different for different engines.
Just try with any and see what happens

Thanks for your reply Rickard,
I have a question :
I am simulating an engine with poppet valves that I only have the IVO(intake valve opening) ,IVC , EVO ,EVC about valve lift profile. Can I have a correct simulation by this information about valve lift?
the valve lift in other crank angle is very effective on my simulation's result?

thanks and best regards,
