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


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.


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.
