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


13-14 February 2020, Department of Energy, Politecnico di Milano

The fourth edition of the "Two Day Meeting on Internal Combustion Engine Simulations using OpenFOAM Tecnology" will be held at Department of Energy of Politecnico di Milano on 13 and 14 February 2020.

The meeting is co-organized by:
- Internal Combustion Engine Group (ICEG), Politecnico di Milano
- Simulation of reactive Thermo-Fluid Systems (STFS), Technical University of Darmstadt.

OpenFOAM is now a consolidated platform for computational fluid dynamics whose capabilities are continuously extended thanks to its object-oriented structure, making it a very efficient platform for the development of advanced numerical and physical models. This Two-Day Meeting is dedicated to engineers and researchers using the OpenFOAM technology for the simulation of internal combustion engines. Presentations from universities, research institutes and industries will address the state of the art, real applications and specific developments related to:
- in-cylinder flows: gas exchange, fuel-air mixing, combustion, pollutant formation;
- intake and exhaust systems: after-treatment, unsteady flows, silencers.

Half day will be also dedicated to the illustrate the OpenFOAM capabilities for the simulation of IC engines with practical examples including mesh generation, pre and post-processing.
