Congress: Advanced approach to dual-fuel engine combustion simulation using detailed chemistry & CFD

Event: FISITA World Congress 14-16 September 2021 online

Name: Dr Andrey Kozlov, Head of department

Company: FSUE NAMI

Presentation Title: F2020-CAF-003 The advanced approach to the dual-fuel engine combustion process simulation using detailed chemistry coupled with CFD

Please introduce yourself briefly…

Dr Andrey Kozlov is the Head of the Energy Efficiency and Alternative Fuels Department of the State Research Center of the Russian Federation FSUE “NAMI”. I completed my bachelor’s degree in East Ukrainian State University, 1993, and my doctor degree at Bauman Moscow State Technical University, 2004. I am the author of several books on engine and vehicle life cycle assessment and particulate matter emission, and more than 160 scientific publications.

What you will talk about at this year’s FISITA World Congress?

The presented work aims to develop a detailed chemistry mechanism for 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation of the combustion process of a dual-fuel heavy-duty engine with the use of detailed chemistry equations, which provides sufficient convergence with the experimental data. This mechanism can be used at the stage of development and calibration of the dual-fuel engines. The application of the developed mechanism allows obtaining correct data when investigating the engine at the different operating modes including that which may not be safe during the experiments on the test bench.

What benefits will participants gain from your presentation?

New information about dual-fuel natural gas and diesel fuel combustion process and emission simulation.

Which trends do you consider as the most important for your domain of research and your geographical region and what challenges do these trends present?

The main challenges at converting engines to dual-fuel operation are increasing of natural gas mass fraction up to 90-95% (from sum mass of both fuels injected) and decreasing of emissions below Euro-6 level.

And what opportunities do these trends offer?

These trends offer decreasing operational cost of heavy-duty vehicles to 2 times and more.

About the FISITA World Congress

Since 1947, the FISITA World Congress has been the leading international meeting place for industry experts, engineers and executives to exchange ideas and discuss the trends that drive the automotive industry forward. The theme for the 38th FISITA World Congress is 'From automobile to mobility. New roles. New challenges' and it will take place 14-16 September 2021, with the opportunity for the global audience to join virtually available for the first time. Registration is now open, with the Early Bird and special registration rates available until 31 August 2021.

Content from the 2020 FISITA Web Congress is available within the FISITA Technical Library, while material from previous Congress events back to 1998 is available in the FISITA Store. By the time of this year’s Congress, all the content will be available within the FISITA Technical Library, with free access provided to FISITA members.
