This two-day course offers an introduction to CONVERGE v2.3 for internal combustion (IC) engine modeling. You will learn about the CONVERGE solver and modeling options while working through a typical IC engine case from start to finish. Because CONVERGE has a completely automated meshing process, you do not need to spend any time preparing the volume mesh, which simplifies the case setup process.
During this course, you will have plenty of time for hands-on practice in CONVERGE Studio v2.3. You will practice preparing the surface and setting up the case for several types of IC engines (including Diesel, PFI Spark Ignition and Multi-Fuel Premixed).
Upon the completion of this course, you will know how to:
Prepare boundaries for motion in CONVERGE Studio v2.3
Set up appropriate boundary and initial conditions based on available data
Control grid settings throughout the computational domain
Set up fuel injection via spray modeling
Set up detailed chemical kinetics for accurate combustion and emissions modeling
Predict solid temperatures via conjugate heat transfer
Set up additional modeling options such as turbulence, sources, and volume-of-fluids
Set up multi-cylinder and multi-cycle simulations
Model abnormal combustion phenomena such as engine knock
Run CONVERGE and monitor your simulation
Post-process results in CONVERGE Studio v2.3
