Heat Transfer Model for Scooter Engines 2008-01-0387
A heat transfer model for small-scale spark-ignition engines has been proposed by authors in previous study. However, this model is only based on single engine, it may not be suitable for the others. In order to improve the accuracy of predicted heat transfer rate for different small-scale engines, another heat transfer model using Stanton number based on two engines is proposed. Prediction results of instantaneous heat flux and global heat transfer based on the proposed model are compared with the experimental results and prediction results of previous model. It is found that the proposed model has prediction results closer to the measured data than the previous models.
