royg is on a distinguished road
I have couple of questions related to thermal management in cylinder heads.
  • I want to know how the analysis is performed for coolant jacket design or modifying the existing jacket design for a cylinder head.
  • What is the design process for a good thermal management for a cylinder head in general.
  • what information is used as input for CFD slover and what information is sent to FEA solver to get the temperature profile.
  • Is it possible to obtain temperature profile from Fluent directly or some FEA code is needed to get that data.
  • How to obtain convective heat transfer coefficients from CFD anaysis?
