Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of Valve Timing and Size on a Compressed Air Engine Performance
  Abstract

The compressed air engine is receiving increasingly worldwide attention because it takes advantage of renewable energy and has zero exhaust emissions. This paper presents a systematic study on valve timing and size of a prototype compressed air engine for optimizing its efficiency and performance. An in-house air engine system model has been developed using the FLOWMASTER platform. The simulated results show that the optimizing valve timings is probably the most critical requirement in the compressed air engine design process.
