Numerical Study of Heat Losses in Automotive Engines during Cold Starts. Application to Prediction of Thermal Deficit. 2005-01-2039

This study focuses on the development of a simulation software able to predict the car cabin blown air temperature. This software describes the fluid circuits (water, oil and air) and the engine blocks using the nodal method. It aims to enhance the global knowledge of the equipment suppliers in the thermal management between the engine and the rest of the car.
A new correlation for the prediction of the engine heat losses is proposed. This correlation predicts the indicated efficiency as a function of engine settings and parameters, obtained from a statistical study. This leads to develop a reduced combustion model, which combined with the simulation software, will offer a real-time running prediction tool.
