Detailed understanding of the temperature distribution in all relevant engine components (cylinder head, cylinder block and piston) for the verification of new a CFD method to predict heat transfer

A large amount of test data was gathered from a production engine under various operating conditions. The measured data were used to establish a new method to derive metal temperature predictions using a combined method of CFD to describe the heat transfer phenomena from the fluids to the metal structure as well as FEM to calculate the metal temperature distribution. The new method is using the AVL workflow manager together with the CFD package FIRE. A very efficient method was developed to achieve high accuracy results in a reasonable time frame. The new process is to a large part automated thus enabling the user to perform CFD and FEM calculations by far more efficiently. This will lead to optimized engine designs with regard to thermal loading and at the same time improved combustion process.
