Effects of meshing strategies on in-cylinder flows

The presentation shows the impact of different meshing strategies on the simulation of the in-cylinder flow structure of the Transparent Combustion Chamber (TCC) engine. Large Eddy Simulation of several consecutive engine cycles are compared to experimental measurements, and the impact of the adopted meshing trategy on both accuracy and computational efficiency is evaluated.
