 April 27, 2008, 22:10 How can I calculate equivalence ratio? #1 Duan J Q Guest   Posts: n/a When simulate diesel engine, equivalence ratio is an important parameter. But how can I calculate it? Can anybody tell me? Thanks for any help you can give me.

And when I calculate air, air is equal to subtract fuel from cell mass or O2+N2+CO2+H2O or O2/0.233 or some way else?

Use command getc to load the mass of fuel vapour in each cell and to load the mass of oxygen in the same cells. Then you can calculate the locale A/F ratio and the local equiv. ratio. Bye

You can also use online calculators like this.
