Abstract: This paper focuses on improving the 3D-Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling of diesel ignited gas engines, with an emphasis on injection and combustion modeling. The challenges of modeling are stated and possible solutions are provided. A specific approach for modeling injection is proposed that improves the modeling of the ballistic region of the needle lift. Experimental results from an inert spray chamber are used for model validation. Two-stage ignition methods are described along with improvements in ignition delay modeling of the diesel ignited gas engine. The improved models are used in the Extended Coherent Flame Model with the 3 Zones approach (ECFM-3Z). The predictive capability of the models is investigated using data from single cylinder engine (SCE) tests conducted at the Large Engines Competence Center (LEC). The results are discussed and further steps for development are identified.
