Accelerate your internal combustion (IC) engine simulations with ANSYS Forte.
Unlike legacy computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools that solve IC engine problems, Forte rapidly predicts engine ignition and emissions. By incorporating proven ANSYS Chemkin-Pro solver technology — the gold standard for modeling and simulating gas phase and surface chemistry — Forte combines multicomponent fuel models with comprehensive spray dynamics. It delivers greater accuracy without compromising time-to-solution.
- Automatic mesh generation including solution adaptive mesh refinement and geometry-based adaptive mesh refinement eliminates weeks of effort typically spent on manual mesh preparation.
- True multicomponent fuel-vaporization models enable a self-consistent representation of the physical spray and the kinetics for accurate prediction of fuel effects.
- Advanced spray models dramatically reduce grid and time-step dependency when compared to existing approaches. This gives you the ability to track soot particle nucleation, growth, agglomeration and oxidation without a compute-time penalty to predict particle size and number.
- Integrated post-processing tools, including ANSYS EnSight, enable the quick analysis, visualization and communication of your Forte results.
Parallel performance gains in ANSYS Forte have resulted in a 2X-plus time reduction for full-cycle IC engine simulations, which include spray, chemistry and flame propagation physics.
