In addition, beginning in the 1980s, several companies offer commercial engine cycle simulation products. Some of these commercial simulations are described at the end of this chapter. 4 Quasi‐dimensional Thermodynamic Engine Cycle Simulations The basic thermodynamic engine cycle simulation has no spatial context. This aspect can be improved by developing empirical relations for the location of the flame front. By using the geometric structure of the combustion chamber and using a flame propagation velocity and geometry, the flame may be identified and assigned a spatial location.
