Comprehensive IC Engine Flow and Combustion Development

Comprehensive IC engine flow and combustion simulation from ANSYS bring together the best of both worlds: optimal CFD solvers and the best combustion chemistry tools. ANSYS' IC engine solution suite includes ANSYS Forte (specialized CFD for IC engine combustion) and ANSYS CHEMKIN-Pro (combustion-chemistry gold-standard) along with the leading general-purpose CFD solvers ANSYS Fluent and ANSYS CFX. These products deliver the most comprehensive solutions available for IC engine flow and combustion simulation:

  • Flow solvers: fast, accurate, transient and steady-state flow solvers
  • Easy engine setup: with the engine-specific ANSYS Forte interface and streamlined ANSYS Workbench ICE system
  • Solution adaptive meshing: fully automatic, dynamic meshing that refines and coarsens based on solution variables, achieving both high accuracy and simulation speed; patented immersed-boundary method enables on-the-fly meshing and mesh refinement
  • Spray: comprehensive set of spray models for nozzle internal flow, primary breakup, secondary breakup, collision and coalescence, vaporization and spray-wall interactions
  • Spark: advanced spark-ignition kernel and flame-propagation modeling
  • Chemistry: industry gold-standard chemistry solution and multicomponent spray vaporization to enable prediction of fuel effects on ignition, knocking and emissions
  • Structural solver: seamless coupling with fluid and thermal solvers for thermal structural durability
