Article Preview

This study presents heat transfer rate and temperature distributions for the prediction of each component in an air-cooled motorcycle engines. The 3-D finite element method was used to solve the temperature field and heat transfer rate for each component (intake valves, exhaust valves, piston, piston rings, cylinder head and cylinder) of motorcycle engine when the piston is in TDC and BDC. The results shows that the fractions of heat transfer rate for each component are as follows: intake valves 11%, exhaust valves 8%, cylinder head 21%, the piston 35% and the cylinder 25%. And the temperature measurement value is in good agreement with experimental data within 20%.
