Abstract: Diesel engines are prime sources to generate power in transportation industrial sectors. Limited petroleum reserves and stringent environmental norms are the two parameters to influence the diesel engine usage in this field. In diesel engines, fuel is injected into the combustion chamber and mixed with the compressed air. Proper mixing of fuel and air is important to produce controlled burn rate. Combustion chamber geometry is the key element in air fuel mixing process. In the present research paper, an attempt is made to simulate the critical combustion and put efforts to optimize the combustion chamber geometry. Diesel –RK is one of the computational fluid dynamics software specifically developed for internal combustion engine simulations. In the present study, single cylinder, four stroke direct ignition diesel engine and Diesel-RK software are considered for investigation. Keywords:
