A Study on Engine Lubrication System by Optimized Network Analysis - Part II: Parametric Study - 2000-01-2923
Parametric studies based on a computer analysis of the lubrication system of a four-cylinder gasoline engine are illustrated in this paper. The effects of various aeration ratios on flow rate and pressure are investigated. Based on results from an existing engine, various combinations of newly developed components such as a new oil pump, a new oil filter, and an oil cooler assembly are tried for analysis. The illustrated results may help designers design engine lubrication systems.
