Numerical Analysis of Flow at Water Jacket of an Internal Combustion Engine
With the increasing degree of the enhancement of engine, engine cooling system design is considered particularly important. This paper used an established three-dimensional model of an engine water jacket to study, and used UDF function in the two-phase flow of the CFD, describe the mathematical model and simulation the engine at different operating conditions, and get the water jacket flow rate transfer thermal process. Finally, the results of the relationship between the engine water jacket of boiling heat transfer and flow velocity have been studied, and the importance of using two-phase flow model has been summarized.
