The pursuit of lower fuel consumption and stricter emission legislation has made a simulation- and optimization-based development methodology important to the automotive industry. The keystone in the methodology, is the system model. But for the results obtained using a model to be credible, the model has to be validated. The paper validates an open-source, meanvalue engine model of a 13 liter CI inline 6 cylinder heavyduty engine, and releases it as open-source.
