The volumetric efficiency is defined as the ratio of the mass of the actual air inducted and the mass of air that would occupy the displaced volume at some standard air density (ρair). 25) The volumetric efficiency is defined to provide a standard indication of how well the engine is provided air. This requires some definition for the air density (ρair) which could be defined for the ambient conditions, the inlet manifold conditions, the inlet port conditions, or some other specification. For this reason, any presentation of the volumetric efficiency should be accompanied by its definition.
STAR‐CD (CD‐Adapco): The original software for the current package was one of the first commercial multi‐dimensional engine codes. The original software was produced by Computational Dynamics, London, England—a company that was started in 1987 . i. VECTIS (Ricardo, plc): A three‐dimensional fluid dynamics program that has been developed specifically to address fluid flow simulations in the vehicle and engine industries. This software includes an automatic mesh generator . 7 Summary Engine Processes Thermodynamic properties The three classifications of engine simulations provide three different sets of tools for understanding engine operation.
Only two values of gamma are used for clarity. 40), the state points (1, 2, 3, and 4) are denoted. This case is the solid line. 20) is denoted with the dashed line. Each of the portions of this cycle may now be considered. Since state 1 is the same for both cases, the compression stroke starts at the same pressure. For the higher gamma case, the final pressure (state 2) is higher and this is consistent with the higher work associated with the higher gamma. For the heat addition portion of the cycle (state 2 to state 3), the higher gamma case results in a higher final pressure.
