3D CFD simulation of large engines using open-source software
CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulation plays a crucial role in the research and development of combustion engines, especially in connection with new fuels such as ammonia and hydrogen. This simulation technique makes it possible to analyze and optimize complex flow and combustion processes in engines. The advantage of open-source software in this area is the unrestricted access to the entire source code, which allows an individual adaptation of the models and solvers to the problem under consideration, especially with regard to new fuels.
Within the scope of the master’s thesis, the application of open-source software for the 3D-CFD simulation of large engines is to be investigated. The target of this master’s thesis is to create a workflow for simulating an existing large gas engine using open-source software. The results will be compared to existing simulations performed with commercial software.
