SINOPSIS

In direct-injection diesel engines the combustion process is strongly influenced by the turbulence of the spray-induced flow. This flow is transient in nature and, therefore, the equilibrium-based k-e-type turbulence models yield inaccurate predictions of the turbulence mixing time scales. This requires adjustments of the turbulence characteristic combustion time by means of the coefficient CM, in order to match experimental cylinder pressures of different engines. These adjustments are explained in terms of nonequilibrium turbulence behavior of the spray-induced flow. A relation between the spatially averaged equilibrium and nonequilibrium turbulence time scales is derived which leads to a scaling law between the different engines. In particular, the value of CM for one engine can be obtained from the optimum CM of another engine, provided the turbulence determining integral length scales are known. This scaling behavior has been demonstrated for four substantially different engines by comparing the tuned values of CM with the computed scaling factors, and favorable agreement has been obtained.
