The work presented describes the development of an interactive model to simulate a direct injection diesel engine under both steady and transient conditions, based on the application of concurrent process computing methods. Starting with the modelling of the engine under steady operating conditions, in which induction, injection, air entrainment, fuel air mixing, combustion, emission and mechanical friction processes are considered, the fuel pump, governor, engine crankshaft and external load dynamics are also investigated to model the transient behaviour of the engine and its associated load.
