Abstract

We began this book by stating the important role of internal combustion engines in the transportation sector and the fact that this role is projected to not diminish in the next few decades. However, increasing fuel prices and escalating environmental concerns due to vehicle emissions are forcing engineers to look for better solutions to improve existing IC engine designs. Modeling IC engines provides a cost-effective and time-efficient way to study engine performance and pollutant formation. With increasing capacity and improved prediction accuracy of IC engine modeling tools, numerical simulations have become more important in assisting IC engine design and optimization.
