Sulzer two stroke diesel engines are used as "prime movers" in container ships,
bulk carriers and tankers. Such ships need to be in service for as long as

demand on engine developers in terms of reducing costs and at the same time
improving reliability. CFD is a proven tool for minimizing experimental effort during
the optimization of receivers, blowers, in-cylinder flow and lubrication systems.
