A modern high speed four cylinder Diesel engine equipped with high pressure common rail fuel injection equipment has been fitted with extensive instrumentation to allow the heat flux and coolant convective heat transfer coefficient through the cylinder walls to be estimated. The instrumentation was located around the circumference of the cylinder and longitudinally down the cylinder. The engine has been run through the new European drive cycle using a dynamic test stand. From the experimental results it was found that there was a strong correlation between the one dimensional heat flux through the cylinder wall and the engine speed. The changes in heat flux were found to be repeatable over the four repeated ECE sections of the drive cycle. It was also found that the magnitude of heat flux reduced down the length of the cylinder.
