The methodology to the project was simulate and calculate using computational fluid dynamic software which are GAMBIT and FLUENT. The project was assumed as steady state problem since in order to do dynamic mesh; a lot of consideration must take to finish the task. In GAMBIT, the geometry of the rotary engine was built until meshing task. After that, mesh file was exported into FLUENT in order to declare boundary condition, operating condition, type of turbulence model, and material properties. After simulation was done, the result on temperature, pressure and density has been recorded into data and translated it into graph. The graph was compared to theoretical and journal that related to this project.

CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION
1.1. Overview 1.1.1. Background Felix Wankel, German Engineer produces a great rotary engine on February 1, 1957 after 6-years working on this engine. Basic idea is almost same compare to 4-stroke engine. The Wankel rotary engine is a fascinating beast that features a very clever rearrangement of the four... [continues]
