Abstract

In this work, fuel spray parameters are studied by varying the fuel temperature. To overcome the tedious experimental task, a 3-D Computational Fluid Dynamics methodology is adopted by injecting fuel at specified temperatures of 313 K, 353 K and 393 K. The validation is accomplished after the optimal spatial and temporal steps of discretization are found out. At a fuel temperature of 313 K, advancing the injection timing from 6 deg bTDC to 20 deg bTDC increases cylinder peak pressure from 79.8 bar to 90.9 bar. Relation between the emission characteristics and spray SMD and temperature is studied.
