Computational fluid dynamic simulations are performed for the turbulent swirling flow in a scale model of a low-speed two-stroke diesel engine with a moving piston. The purpose of the work is to investigate the accuracy of different turbulence models including two-equation Reynolds- Averaged Navier-Stokes models and large eddy simulations. The numerical model represent the full three-dimensional geometry and the piston motion is modeled by compressing cells in the axial direction. The CFD predictions are compared to experimental results and a reasonable agreement is found.
