COMPUTER SIMULATION OF AN AIRCRAFT ENGINE FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM
The purpose of this report was to develop an analytical model of the fuel system to provide a basis for quantitatively exploring deficiencies in the system response which lead to poor exhaust emission characteristics. A computer model of the fuel system was developed based on component testing and found to give accurate predictions for pressures and flow rates within the system. The model has been used to investigate modifications to the system for improved fuel management and reduced exhaust emissions. The effect of improved fuel management on engine exhaust emissions was evaluated.
