In the earlier blog Combustion in Internal Combustion (IC) Engines we had an introduction about the combustion phenomena taking place in an automotive IC engine. The present article is an effort in continuation to have insights on CFD of combustion in IC engines. As we know the key factors that govern the decision making of any automobile buyer in general are, its mileage, performance, maintenance and tentative life apart from passenger comfort and aesthetics. An engine forms the heart of an automobile that can dictate its performance and life and is solely governed by the combustion pattern inside. The detail analysis of combustion in any engine is one of the most important key factors to confirm its efficient design wherein computational fluid dynamics (CFD) proves to be an efficient tool.

Combustion marks its existence since Stone Age period in form of mere fire and since then this phenomenon has played a major role in evolution as well as revolution of mankind. Right from its mediocre application of providing light and warmth to its sheer brilliant use for rocket propulsion for space expedition, combustion has done it all. The major applications of combustion being its use in boilers, gas turbines, automotive, rockets etc, the focus of this blog is to give an insight on combustion in internal combustion engines used for automobiles.
