CFD Modelling of a Revolution Engine
The project with Revolution Engine Corporation, a development stage company striving to commercialize a novel internal combustion engine, will simulate the airflow into and out of the expansion and compression of cylinders of the revolution engine. As a secondary objective the research will model the stresses and temperatures in the engine header through which the air flows. These tasks will require dynamic modelling of the reciprocating pistons and tappet valves. As a result the project will require considerable human expertise and computing resources.
