SURVEY OF THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL EVALUATION OF THERMAL LOADING OF DIESEL ENGINES IN NORWAY 790819
The paper covers the background and some present research in the Norwegian milieu related to thermal loading of large and medium speed diesel engines. Instrumentation employed in this research is presented, emphasis being placed on sensors for combustion and heat transfer. Use of minicomputers for data acquisition, processing and presentation is emphasized, together with their use for FEM calculation of temperature fields. Short surveys of current projects in process modelling, digitally controlled injection, plasma-sprayed thermal barriers, combustion of problem heavy fuels and in thermal loading of medium speed diesels are given, to-ther with a number of typical references.
