The engine intake pipe is an important part of the engine. A reasonable layout of the intake pipe can prolong service life of the engine and improve engine power. The optimization of design of the intake pipe has a great impact on the overall performance of the engine. The design of the intake pipe based on experience is subjective and unilateral, and the design cycle and experimental period are long. Ansys Fluent software is used to simulate the design, which can more intuitively reflect the air flow condition of the intake pipe and enable selection of the best layout. First of all, a three-dimensional model of the intake pipe is simulated and the airflow characteristics are studied and analyzed. The streamline diagram and velocity contour under various conditions are obtained. Then, compared with the simulation results, the position of the intake pipe is optimized. Finally, the optimized intake pipe is simulated and verified. According to the experimental results, the intake performance of the optimized intake pipe is greatly improved.
