Air intake ducts; Pressure; Flow direction coefficient; Tumble flow ratio.


By creating a three-dimensional model of the intake pipeline, using AVL software to mesh and virtual simulation experiments, using the control variable method, changing the temperature conditions and pressure conditions one by one to observe the flow of the air pipe and the cylinder, and observing the numerical changes of the flow direction coefficient and tumbling flow ratio, the best solution was found. Through the virtual simulation experiment of the 3D model, the influence of external factors such as temperature and pressure on the air flow in the cylinder is obtained. The relationship between the characteristic parameters of the air intake tract was found through AVL numerical simulation, and the established three-dimensional model could accurately obtain the data after testing, which provided theoretical proof for the subsequent optimization scheme. The experimental results show that the tumbling flow ratio is increased as much as possible without changing the flow coefficient and the fuel economy of the engine is improved. But it also affects the flow coefficient, making it go down. Temperature has little effect on the flow in the cylinder. The flow velocity in the cylinder changes significantly under different pressures, and the area of the vortex area increases.
