Star CD: Flow in an Engine Cylinder

Person in charge: A. Stoukov
Objective :
The aim of this task is to learn the use of Star CD code and to illustrate some of the transient, dynamic-mesh features of STAR-CD (namely 'event' handling, moving grids and cell attachment/detachment) by setting up and solving a simplified port-valve and piston-cylinder problem. The problem is two-dimensional and represents a simplified four-stroke engine.
