Second Two-day Meeting on
Internal Combustion Engine Simulations Using OpenFOAM® Technology


26 – 27 November 2015, Department of Energy, Politecnico di Milano

This meeting is dedicated to all the engineers and researchers using the OpenFOAM technology to simulate thermal and fluid-dynamic processes in internal combustion engines. Presentations from universities, research institutes and industries addressed the state of the art, real applications and specific developments related to in-cylinder flows, fuel-air mixing, intake/exhaust systems (including also exhaust after-treatment and silencers). If interested, please see also the program of the of the first meeting Two-day Meeting , which was held in 2011.
