The objective of this paper is to the study effects of Late Intake Valve Closing (LIVC), and how it affects the in-cylinder fluid flow for four stroke gasoline engines. Further investigation of LIVC has been performed with the help of an engine cycle simulation program (GT-Power). Study shows that LIVC is beneficial for reduction of pumping losses, which may reduce the break specific fuel consumption (BSFC) of the engine. In this paper, a simulation of LIVC was achieved by retarding the timing of the solenoid actuated intake valve.
