'Heat Transfer in 4 cylinder engine block' simulation project by vardhan17


#1

I created a new simulation project called 'Heat Transfer in 4 cylinder engine block':

This project is to analyse the heat transfer rate in a 4 cylinder engine block

This project is to analyse the heat transfer in a 4 cylinder engine block. The CAD model is imported from grabcad.com/library. Tetrahedral automatic mesh is done using multiple processor to speed up the job.

Solver used here is Thermostructural analysis > Heat transfer. Here for simplicity Steady-state heat transfer is taken into account. Material used is Iron.
Boundary conditions are:

  1. Inner wall temperature
  2. Outer wall convective heat flux

Simulation is run up-to steady state attainment of the system. The solution fields here are temperature distribution and heat flux.
