A Diesel Engine Thermal Transient Simulation: Coupling Between a Combustion Model and a Thermal Model 2003-01-0224

A realistic simulation of engine thermal transient behavior requires a coupling between a combustion model and a thermal model of the engine cooling system. This paper describes a procedure used to realize such a simulation. We will develop reasons that lead us towards the choice of Hohenberg's correlation as an engine heat transfer model. A thermal transient simulation of air blown into the car cabin has been computed on a NEDC driving cycle. An experimental study in a wind tunnel has been carried out to validate the heater core heating power and air temperature simulations.
