Computational Fluid Dynamics


The use of computational fluid dynamics in the Internal Combustion Engine Research Group stretches back to 1985, when it was use to model the scavenging flow in two-stroke engines. However, the application of CFD has evolved since then to cover many more areas of engine research, including four-stroke engines, airboxes, turbo-machinery, catalysts and exhausts. In addition to the direct application of CFD, considerable work has also taken place on the modelling of fundamental flow processes to provide confidence in the application of CFD to more detailed studies. To-date this has included work on steady and unsteady flow in pipes, bends and junctions, including heat transfer aspects. All the fundamental work is backed up by detailed data from in-house expe rimental studies using optical and physical techniques.

Project Funding

We have access to a range of potential funding mechanisms to support your business collaborate with this project including

ktp Knowledge Transfer Partnerships are based on partnerships between academic groups and companies who need access to skills and knowledge in order to innovate. The academic and industrial partners jointly devise and manage a two or three year programme to achieve the advances the company needs. This programme of work is carried out in the company by a KTP Associate and the resulting relationship can be very challenging and rewarding to all parties
4k-vouchers Innovation Vouchers are designed to enable small Northern Ireland enterprises to access knowledge and expertise to develop innovative solutions to business issues. The programme provides a voucher of up to £4000 to enable small enterprises to engage with one of the 41 universities, colleges and other publicly funded research organisations throughout Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland
