This paper presents numerical simulations of turbulent flows during the intake and the compression strokes of a model engine. The Favre average Navier-Stokes equations are solved with a k-ε turbulence model. The numerical procedure uses a time dependent semi-implicit scheme and a finite element method with a moving mesh (Buffat, 1991, Mao, 1990). Results of 2-D axisymmetrical calculations with and without inlet swirl are presented and compared to experimental data (Lance et al., 1991). The influence of different turbulence models and the numerical precision of the simulations are also discussed.
