3D CFD & Combustion Engineer, Ford Otomotiv Sanayi
Anıl Can Ağar is working as a CFD Analyst at Engine Computer Aided Engineering Department of Ford Otomotiv Sanayi A.S. in Turkey. He has graduated from Heat transfer and Fluid Flow Masters Programme of Istanbul Technical University Graduate School of Science, Engineering and Technology, in 2015. He is experienced in multi phase flows, exhaust gas dispersion, diesel combustion and project management. His current research interest multi objective geometry optimization of flow related structures.
Compressor is one of the key components of an Air Induction System(AIS) of a diesel engine and have detrimental effect on engine’s performance. Compressor’s performance is effected by its design, operating conditions driven by engine and flow characteristics at its inlet. The flow behavior at compressor inlet is determined by design of the upstream components. In most of the cases, flow reaches to the compressor is ill-conditioned according to restrictions of design space. This situation can lead poor Noise-Vibration-Harshness (NVH) performance and low compressor efficiency. In order to tackle the problem, using a flow conditioning device, a structure enhances the flow with addition prewhirl at upstream of compressor, is deemed to be an effective method. The study is based on design and optimization of such device for a diesel engine to be installed into a Ford truck.
The workflow is completed with minimum user interference, highly decreased delivery time, complete fulfillment of flow characteristics and acceptable rise in pressure loss. The developed methodology and scripts can also be used as surrogate for projects ahead.
