Application of the Oppenheim Correlation (OPC) for Evaluation of Heat Losses from Combustion in IC-Engine 2000-01-0202

The Oppenheim Correlation (OPC) is a new empirical algorithm, which allows a simple estimate of heat losses to the wall during the combustion in IC-engine.
In present paper the results of different applications of OPC will be shown.
Even if there are still several needs and ideas for further research it can be stated, that the OPC is a promising possibility of modeling the wall heat losses and due to its simplicity it has to be recommended to the engine community.
The OPC can be used not only for didactics purposes, but also for quick simulation of wall heat losses and eventually for the on-line regulation of the cooling system.
