Diesel Cylinder Heat Transfer Design Criteria 580053
THE problem of this study was:
Can a method of analysis be found which adequately predicts the heat-transfer and cyl-wall temperature phenomena in diesel engines?
Are there criteria for the design of diesel engine cyl that give the limits of reliable practice as found in typical diesels?
Such a method of analysis is detailed in this paper. Design criteria were also found which appear applicable to broad classes of diesel engines. It was determined that the method was useful in prediction of the thermodynamic performance of a diesel insofar as the influence of cyl heat transfer on efficiency, power, and cooling load were predictable.
