'Engine-Piston-Heat-Transfer' simulation project by afischer


#1

I created a new simulation project called 'Engine-Piston-Heat-Transfer':

This example simulation shows the heat transfer in an engine piston due to a convective heat flux.


More of my public projects can be found here.


#2

The mesh was generated using the parametrized tetrahedralization operation with first order tetrahedral elements. The heat transfer is caused by a convective heat flux over the free faces of the engine piston due to an external flow. The figure below shows the temperature distribution within the piston.
