This one-day course offers a hands-on introduction to CONVERGE for internal combustion (IC) engine modeling. You will practice setting up several types of IC engine cases, including diesel, PFI spark-ignited, and pre-chamber.
Upon the completion of this course, you will know how to:
Prepare the piston and valves for motion
Create an engine sector geometry for efficient computation
Set up solver parameters and data files for engine simulations
Control grid settings to obtain efficient and accurate engine simulation results
Set up fuel injection via spray modeling
Set up detailed chemical kinetics for accurate combustion and emissions modeling
Set up wall heat transfer modeling in CONVERGE and direct CONVERGE to write heat transfer quantities for thermal analysis
Set up additional modeling options that are important for engine simulations (e.g., turbulence and sources)
Post-process engine-relevant results in CONVERGE Studio
Introduction to CONVERGE
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS COURSE
This course is intended for CONVERGE users who want to learn how to simulate internal combustion engines in CONVERGE. This course can also be used as a refresher for experienced or occasional users of previous versions of CONVERGE.
