Piston bowl optimization using STAR-CD and HEEDS

A multi-objective optimization is carried out to drive bowl shape and injector optimization of a CI engine for automotive application.

Both full-load and part-load operations are simulatenously accounted for in the optimization loop in order to cover a reasonably broad range of engine operations.
