The helix angle at inlet port decides the spread. For improving the spread we are going to perform CFD analysis on ports having different helix angle. This is the Port simulation project. All the works are carried out through simulation software such as NX-CAD & ANSYS. Improving the efficiency of the Six Cylinder Engine by Redesign of the Port called Helical Port. Due to this swirl motion of air inside the cylinder takes place. So that relative velocity between air and fuel is increased and get a rich mixture for combustion to increase efficiency. The Port will be modeled in NX-CAD Software, and the flow characteristics can be determined by CFD Analysis using Flotran 142 element in a module in ANSYS Software
