The statistical tendency of a GDI spark-ignition engine to undergo knocking combustion as a consequence of spark timing variation is numerically investigated. In particular, attention is focused on the importance to match combustion-relevant and knock-relevant fuel properties to ensure consistency with the experimental evidence. An inhouse surrogate formulation methodology is used to emulate real gasoline properties, comparing fuel models of increasing complexity. Knock is investigated using a proprietary statistical knock model (GruMo Knock Model, GK-PDF). The model can infer a log-normal distribution of knock intensity within a RANS formalism, by means of transport equations for variances and turbulence-derived probability density functions (PDFs) for physical quantities. The calculated distributions are compared to measured statistical distributions. The proposed numerical/experimental comparison constitutes an advancement in synthetic chemistry integration into 3D-CFD combustion simulations.
