DIESEL-RK is an engine simulation tool
The DIESEL-RK is professional thermodynamic full-cycle engine simulation software. This tool covers wide range of practice tasks: from general
multicylinder engine concept analysis up to design of engine systems. The kernel of DIESEL-RK
includes gas-exchange model, heat-exchange in engine elements,
turbocharging, EGR, friction, water condensation, etc. (everything for full
cycle simulation). DIESEL-RK is focused on advanced diesel combustion simulation and
on emission formation prediction. The main features of DIESEL-RK are below, see details in What is a Diesel-RK.pdf as well.

DIESEL-RK is a new generation of
engine simulation software DIESEL intended for ICE analysis. Diesel-RK
code allows simulation and optimization of mixture formation and
combustion in diesel engines. Spatial visualization of fuel sprays evolution
helps to design piston bowl shape and sprayer nozzles orientations. NO emission
model uses Zeldovich's mechanism for conventional engines and Detailed Kinetic Mechanism with zone model of combustion
for modern engines having large EGR and multiple injection.
Soot emission model is realized. Modeling of
combustion with multiple fuel injection with electronically controlled
fuel injection system allows development a Common Rail control algorithm.
Thermodynamic model provides turbocharger and supercharger matching
using SAE format files with turbine and compressor maps, EGR
simulation. Thermodynamic analysis and multiparametric optimization of valve timing,
in-cylinder parameters, fuel injection system are provided. Remote access
via Internet is supported. For simultaneous optimization of few engine
parameters: NOx, Soot and SFC the target function including list of
engine parameters may be calculated with User Model DLL and linked to
the existing DIESEL-RK kernel. Detail Chemistry simulation at Ignition
delay prediction for diesel fuel and Bio-fuel is implemented for PCCI
and HCCI analysis. Results obtained with
CHEMKIN code are used. Gas engines fueled by any kind of gas including
natural gas, pipeline gas, biogas, syngas and arbitrary mixtures of
gases are supported. Download software for free ...
