CFD Technology for Formula One Engine

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review F1 Special (The third Era Activities)

Summary

Simulation technology has advanced markedly in recent years, and various types of CFD models have come into use for Formula One engine development.
However, to use such simulation modeling it is necessary to establish simulation technology for the unique conditions for Formula One engines, such as that for high engine speed.
The pressure of each engine part was measured and in-cylinder gas motion and fuel spraying behavior were also measured using a single-cylinder optical engine, enabling CFD technology that can be applied to Formula One engines to be created.
