Peak cylinder pressure of a compression-ignition engine can be affected by the engine inlet air condition, such as its inlet air temperature and pressure . The variation of peak cylinder pressure due to varying inlet air temperature or pressure is analytically studied. A model is developed and simplified, and thus the variations of can be predicted along with varying inlet air temperature or pressure. The analysis and prediction indicate that cylinder active compression ratio (CR) and intake air boost ratio play relatively significant roles in affecting the variation of over inlet air temperature and pressure, and the pressure variation is proportional to and ratio . Comparison between the predicted results using the simplified model and those from engine experiments shows a close agreement in both the trend and magnitude. The investigation and prediction also include modeling the variation in due to varying the cylinder TDC clearance volume . The simplified model is presented and shows that the change in versus varying also depends on the cylinder compression ratio. It is indicated that for a certain change in the clearance volume, a higher compression-ratio configuration would produce a greater change in than a lower one does, especially as the rest of the engine design and operating parameters remain unchanged.
