Mercedes-Benz recently debuted its Bluetec emission-control technology in Europe with its Vision C 220 Bluetec, which uses a four-cylinder diesel engine. The vehicle is designed to be a high-mileage, low-emissions passenger car that saves fuel and reduces CO2 and NOx output. While the Bluetec technology was first rolled out in the U.S. with the six-cylinder E 320 version, Bluetec engineering was developed to meet European market requirements that will go into effect in 2015. The new four-cylinder version further reduces emission and ups the gas mileage to just under 43 mpg.

The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
