Article Preview

In order to obtain the radiation heat transfer theory and calculation methods, the movement of the gas particles, location, intensity, temperature, are researched in cylinder under different conditions with combustion system and the mode of heat transfer. Under high temperature conditions in the cylinder, the gas radiation heat transfer is researched in the complex heat transfer theory. A statistical correlation K narrow band model, a mean absorption coefficient, a gas line databases, by-line calculation method are found, through research and analysis emissivity, transmittance, absorption coefficient, typical models, mathematical equations, database, calculation methods. Examine the distribution performance of each database for different media concentration and temperature, a statistical narrow-band band parametric model accuracy is tested, using statistical narrow band model, the results of the use of by-line method. Research shows: selected spectral database, calculation method has a greater impact on the results. The research also shows the result coincides calculations based by-line HITEWP2010 database method, whether radiant heat or wall flux, statistical narrow band model. These are supplied to the internal combustion engine cylinder design.
