In the process of developing it's new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, the powertrain engineers at Ford came up with a lot innovative solutions to reducing emissions and fuel consumption. Most of those solutions involved software, both for developing the engine and then for controlling it. The use of computational fluid dynamics is increasingly common in engine design and elsewhere. Ford actually has developed its own in-house CFD analysis system along with a fuel spray model. The system allowed the engin
