Engine simulation software

  1. Sep 26, 2007 #1
    This might not be the best place to put this post but still i would like to know about some good softwares which are used to:
    1.Simulate the flow in intake manifold.
    2.Simulate the engine performance.

    GT Power is widely accepted to be the industry standard for internal combustion simulation (throughout the industrial, commercial, passenger and motorsport circles), but many large engine manufacturers have developed their own code.

    Intake manifold flow may be better simulated using some CFD code.
