This complex task of improving on combustion engines, that have already reached a very high level of sophistication during their more than 100 year long history, can nowadays be achieved only by a combination of advanced experimental and computational studies. Despite the quantitative uncertainties of numerical simulations that are often greater than those of experiments, the modeling of combustion engine processes has some significant advantages that make its utilization in today’s engine development a necessity. In this regard, it is obvious that numerical simulations are especially suited to carry out extensive parametric studies, since they are much more time and cost effective than the alternative construction and investigation of numerous prototypes.
