Thermal Studies in the Exhaust Manifold of a Turbocharged V6 Diesel Engine Operating Under Steady-State Conditions
This study employs experimental and computational methods to investigate the thermal state of the exhaust manifold of a multi-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine operating under steady-state conditions. The local skin temperatures and surface heat fluxes varied significantly throughout the external surface of the manifold. The augmentation of the local heat flux with increasing load and engine speed may be represented solely by the increase in the fuel mass flow rate. The results of the 1D simulation are in good agreement with the measurements of the exit gas temperatures, skin temperatures, and surface heat fluxes.
