Paper Abstract

The flow through the inlet valve gap of a Diesel engine cylinder head has been measured under steady flow and motored engine conditions. The excellent agreement between the swirling flows generated at maximum valve lift justifies the use of steady flow data as inlet conditions for the computational fluid dynamic modelling of engine cylinder flows.
