Welcome to the JAFM online scientific journal system

JAFM is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal with a scope that covers all aspects of theoretical, numerical and experimental fluid mechanics. The emphasis is on the applied rather than purely mathematical aspects of fluid mechanics.

JAFM offers a rapid and high quality peer-review process overseen by its distinguished international Editorial Board. The journal benefits from an efficient online submission process and online publication upon acceptance.

JAFM papers are freely available and the accepted papers are published free of cost.

For further assistance for submitting manuscripts, the JAFM secretary may be contacted by the following email address: secretary@jafmonline.net.

Title : Effects of Altitude and Temperature on the Performance and Efficiency of Turbocharged Direct Injection Gasoline Engine
Pages : 1825-1836
Authors : S. Motahari,  Iman Chitsaz, 
Anstract : Iran is located at the high altitude region and has a diverse four season climate. The temperature difference of two locations at the same time reaches to 50° C. Therefore, the modern direct injection turbocharged engines are highly affected at this condition. This paper deals with the effects of temperature and pressure variations on the engine performance and fuel consumption of turbocharged gasoline direct injection engine. Ford ecoboost is selected for this study and the base experiments are performed at the sea level. At the next step, a comprehensive one-dimensional model of the engine is constructed in GT power and validated with experimental data. Validated model is implemented to investigate the effects of ambient air variations on the engine performance and fuel consumption. The simulations revealed that low end torque is not highly affected by the temperature increase due to the turbocharging compensation while engine torque is significantly dropped at high engine speeds in the elevated temperatures. At constant air temperature, brake specific fuel consumption is decreased for higher intake pressure up to 3000 rpm and does not change up to 3500 rpm.

Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics

The Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics (JAFM) is an international, peer-reviewed journal which covers a wide range of theoretical, numerical and experimental aspects in fluid mechanics. The emphasis is on the applications in different engineering fields rather than on pure mathematical or physical aspects in fluid mechanics. Although many high quality journals pertaining to different aspects of fluid mechanics presently exist, research in the field is rapidly escalating.
