Simulation of Transient Heat Transfer for Coupling 3-D Moving Component System Within Internal Combustion Chamber
Transient heat transfer computer program of the coupling 3-D moving piston assembly-lubricant film-liner system is successfully developed for predicting the distribution of temperatures in the component system, in which the finite element technology has been employed. The heat transfer relation of the moving piston assembly-lubricant film-liner has been established and 3-D discrete model of the system is obtained with the hypothesis of thinking the lubricant film as 1-D heat resistance. The discrete models of single component are assembled into the whole coupling model with the coupling theory. Some appropriate ways have been employed to deal with the moving arrays in the stiffness matrix because of the moving boundary conditions. The software has been employed to analyze a gasoline engine.
