Abstract:
    The project pertains to the mathematical modeling of intake and exhaust flows in a reciprocating IC engine and envisages parameterization of the single-phase fluid flows in a diesel engine.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Research on efficiency improvement for internal combustion engines is going on. Most of it revolves around valve timing, homogenizing air-fuel mixture, etc. The study of intake and exhaust flows can help develop a better understanding of the engine and prove beneficial in the cause.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   We are surrounded by ICEs, from power generation to prime mover, marine, and even the future of automobiles. Although EVs might seem to be the way to go but still cleaner power generation for batteries is a need to be fulfilled.
How will the solution works
    We will be working on CFD analysis to understand the intake and exhaust flows of ICE. This study will lead our direction to other aspects of engine design and finally, according to mindmap, we want to extend our project toward a more effective opposed-piston engine.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    All researchers in the line. Our method and approach might be different. People mostly study in-cylinder flows and we are trying to tackle the problem differently.
