Abstract

IC engine cooling, irregular geometries, undeveloped flow and multi-component fluids all contribute to a very complex situation. Current IC engine design makes extensive use of CFD. However, current CFD models do not consider the effects of nucleate boiling. The authors have undertaken work to evaluate and develop predictive methods focusing on convective and boiling heat transfer. Critical heat flux (CHF) studies have also been undertaken. CFD has also been used in predicting convective heat transfer and it's suitability has been assessed for including empirical boiling models into this simulation environment. This paper attempts to summarise the salient findings of this work.
