Grahic Jump Location
Numerical results from the PFR model compared with experiments. The TD100 engine is in this case run at 1000 rpm and ϕ=0.368. The jagged line represents results from a single experimental engine cycle and the broken line is its smoothed version.
Grahic Jump Location
Temperature distribution in the boundary layer. The temperature increases from the wall temperature and asymptotically approaches the bulk gas temperature.
Grahic Jump Location
Pressure history. Results from the new model with varying number of particles are compared to experimental data and a previous model result.
