Abstract: If we consider the reasons for the Environmental Pollution from the last few decades, it is clear that most of the pollution is because of the hike in the usage of “Fossil fuels” in the transportation. Our attempts to build much energy efficient vehicles and demand for these vehicles are increasing accordingly. From the practical observations we can clearly understand that the UN-burnt fuels in the combustion chamber of an automobile engine causes the pollution and this UN-burnt fuels (carbon particles) will come out through muffler present to the automobile, which causes the pollution in the environment by releasing them. Our project is to understand these effects in a much more meticulous way and suggest few developments that can be made in this particular field. For this we would like to take up the case study of the single cylinder spark ignition engine of 4 stroke and their current efficiency level and the major drawbacks of them. Today, the use of software tools in the field of research and Industry has become inevitable because of the complexities that we are facing at present and the ease with which such problems can be solved using these tools. For an Engineer of this generation, it is a need to be proficient in using these tools. Hence, we would like to model the combustion system in ICEM-CFD and make the analysis of this in CFD.
