The next discussion will provide a brief review of the status of multi‐dimensional simulations as of 2015. This is a highly evolving field due to advances in computing processing (faster hardware), advances of computing techniques (faster software), and advances in understanding the physical and chemical processes. Shi and Reitz  provide a review of these types of simulations as of 2010. They summarize the basic approach of CFD type computations, and the modeling needed for turbulence, spray and evaporation, combustion, pollutant emissions, and cylinder heat transfer.
2 Since these assumptions and approximations are based on ideal processes, the results are typically much too optimistic compared to actual engine performance. The trends of a couple of important engine characteristics, however, are predicted (this is described below). Improvements to the air standard cycle analysis were adopted in the 1930s . These improvements included using more realistic thermodynamic properties based on more realistic mixtures. For example, during the compression process, the working fluid was modeled as a mixture of fuel vapor, air, and residual gases.
2004). Engineering Fundamentals of the Internal Combustion Engine, second edition, Pearson Prentice Hall, New Jersey. 1 Introduction This chapter will provide a brief overview of the various types and evolution of engine cycle simulations. Engine cycle simulations have been developed and used to study a variety of features and issues relative to internal‐combustion engines for over half a century. A portion of these previous studies are mentioned in this chapter, but a comprehensive review is beyond the scope of this book.
