Hello, I was working with one ICE simulation program, and noticed, that in diesel engine, where a/f is 1.75, max combustion pressure is 128.81bar, and max combustion temperature is 2118.1K, and in same engine, where a/f ratio is 1.5, max combustion pressure is 115.71bar, an max ombustion temperature is 1982.2K, if a/f ratio is leaner than 1.75, pressure and temperature also drops. I always thougt, that in diesel, if a/f is richer, pressure and temperature should be higher. So where is point in diesel engine, where combustion pressure and temperature is highest? And why pressure and temperature rops, when going to richer side?
