Based on the first sedan of the LYNK&CO brand from Geely, the high-performance configuration equipped with an additional aerodynamic package was developed. The aerodynamic package including front wheel deflectors, front lip, side skirts, rear spoiler, and rear diffuser, was required to be upgraded to generate enough aerodynamic downforce for better handling stability, without compromising the aerodynamic drag of the vehicle too much to keep a low fuel consumption.Starting from the baseline configuration of the aerodynamics package provided by the design studio, the components were optimized for aerodynamic drag and lift using the simulation approach with PowerFLOW in combination with a design space exploration method. As a result, the targets for the aerodynamic coefficients of the vehicle and in particular a good trade-off between lift and drag were achieved. Wind tunnel testing was involved to calibrate the simulation results at the beginning and to validate the optimized design at the end of the aerodynamic development. A consistently good agreement between the simulation and experiment was achieved.

A Numerical Study on Combustion and Emission Characteristics of Marine Engine through Miller Cycle Coupled with EGR and Water Emulsified Fuel

The combustion in low-speed two-stroke marine diesel engines can be characterized as large spatial and temporal scales combustion. One of the most effective measures to reduce NOx emissions is to reduce the local maximum combustion temperature. In the current study, multi-dimensional numerical simulations have been conducted to explore the potential of Miller cycle, high compression ratio coupled with EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) and WEF (water emulsified fuel) to improve the trade-off relationship of NOx-ISFC (indicated specific fuel consumption) in a low-speed two-stroke marine engine. The results show that the EGR ratio could be reduced combined with WEF to meet the Tier III emission regulation. The penalty on fuel consumption with EGR and WEF could be offset by Miller cycle and high geometric compression ratio. NOx can be reduced by 81.1% without penalty on fuel economy by using retarded exhaust valve closing timing (20┬░CA later) combined with 20% EGR and 40% W/F (the ratio of water and fuel), which can meet the Tier III emission regulation.
