Abstract:

The report covers work to develop an engine simulation program for use by the Army Tank and Automotive Command in their engine development program. Such a program is needed as an engine development tool as well as an aid in evaluating proposed unusual engine configurations. An engine simulation program was written using the best available information. At the end of the contract this program was rewritten to update it and make it compatible with the Univac 1108. Full details including the computer program are given for this final program. In addition to the writing and rewriting of the program, considerable effort was expended in comparing the program with experimental data and in developing new data. Areas that were studied included a parameter study of an engine, the development of a data acquistion and handling system, studies in both convective and radiant heat transfer and in the effect of heat transfer on intake manifold oscillations and studies in obtaining rates of heat release and in developing a model for combustion in a diesel engine. The current status of engine simulations and recommendations as to ways in which TACOM can benefit by using the program are given.
