Flow behaviour analysis of injection mixer for CNG engines using computational fluid dynamics

Use of gaseous fuels for fuelling the engines reduces reactive hydrocarbons and do not pose the problem of vaporization as with the liquid fuels. One of the problems of gaseous mixers is the ability to prepare a homogeneous mixing of air and fuel at a specific air-fuel ratio prior to entering the engine resulting high exhaust emissions. The objective of this project is to carry out three dimensional CFD analysis of CNG injection mixer to understand the flow behaviour of air fuel mixture and to optimize the design of injection mixer. The analysis was carried out by varying the injection position and injection inclination. The results of the CFD simulation could be used to understand the effect of position of fuel tube, injection inclination in the mixing of air and fuel. Further the results of the study would also be considered for the design modification.
