Topic 4: Panel Discussions 2 April 5, 2014 ECN 3.X Topic 4.1 Measurements for Simulation benchmarking Experimental efforts require more than simulation benchmarking. Experiments provide observations beyond 5 senses. Contributions of simulation to experimental results Steady-state operation is not adequate for assessing LES effectiveness. Compute n cycles perturb cycle n+1 initial/boundary conditions compute next cycle(s) Compare with equivalent perturbation in the experiment Interpret Interpolate & extrapolate design Archive
Topic 4: Panel Discussions 3 April 5, 2014 ECN 3.X Topic 4.2 Simulation-to-simulation benchmarking (LES, RANS) - Haworth How do we know when (if) our physical models/numerical methods/mesh resolution/boundary condition specification/etc. are sufficient for the task at hand? – Engine simulations are expensive - especially multiple-cycle LES Should we require/suggest submission of results using reference models? – e.g., turbulence, ignition, flame propagation... – To what extent do results from different codes vary, even with nominally the same physical models? Should we require/suggest submission of results for one or more reference configurations? – Back to decaying homogeneous isotropic turbulence in a period box? Should we require/suggest submission of quantitative resolution metrics for LES results? – Several metrics have been proposed, e.g., xx% of TKE resolved Should we require/suggest submission of convergence metrics for LES? – e.g., resolved + residual (subfilter-scale) contributions to specified quantities independent of mesh size in appropriate limits
Topic 4: Panel Discussions 4 April 5, 2014 ECN 3.X Topics 4.3 Benchmarking: comparisons, analysis, and validation 4.4 CCV origins and abatement - Lucchini Simulations vs exp. data: How to validate a CFD code for engine simulations? 1)Identification of a common engine geometry which will be used for cold-flow validation and a single operating point. TCC is a good candidate. 2)How many cycles to simulate (RANS)? How many cycles to measure to properly get average quantities for RANS comparison? 3)Which are the proper boundary conditions to be set at boundaries: Total variable pressure? Mass flow? How do boundary conditions affect the predicted volumetric efficiency? How to evaluate this? 4)Effects of mesh structure (even more than grid size) to be absolutely evaluated. Is a coarse, flow-oriented grid much better than a refined non-oriented one?
Topic 4: Panel Discussions 5 April 5, 2014 Is the Spray G injector suitable for engine experiments? EFC – Pathway for Spray G into and engine YES! early injection, homogenous late injection, stratified late injection, HCCI, dilute combustion, etc. Central mount position required (no bend angle) What could be learned by putting Spray G into an engine? What problems should be pursued? MUCH TO BE LEARNED! Cylinder flow / spray interaction - stochastics Ignition and combustion Spray / wall interactions... Need to be careful to maintain focus
Topic 4: Panel Discussions 6 April 5, 2014 ECN 3.X Diesel Engine Needs for Spray B - Oivind Andersson Which important spray phenomena are not accounted for in spray vessels? Spray-swirl interaction Spray-spray interaction – Entrainment of hot products – Effects on flow between jets Spray-wall interaction – Processes downstream of impingement point Late cycle mixing (?) – How do sprays affect processes occurring after EOI? Multiple injections – Why does a post injection reduce soot, etc? – Combustion system effects!
