ABSTRACT In this study, an in-house quasi dimensional code has been developed which simulates the intake, compression, combustion, expansion and exhaust strokes of a homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine. The compressed natural gas (CNG) has been used as fuel. A detailed chemical kineticscheme constituting of 310 and 1701 elementary equations developed by [Bakhshan and al.] has been applied for combustion modeling andheat release calculations. The zero-dimensional k-ε turbulence model has been used for calculation of heat transfer. The output results are the performance and pollutants emission and combustion characteristics in HCCI engines. Parametric studies have been conducted to discussing the effects of various parameters on performance and pollutants emission of these engines.
