FEA of Solid Stream Coupling Field Formed by Automobile Engine Cylinder Head and Cylinder Head Gasket
This paper focuses on discussing the application of FEA theory and method in calculation of composite structure strength between engine cylinder head and head gasket. Based on finite element analysis software, the integrated system of 3D CAD/CAE application software was developed for the finite-element analysis of the composite structure consisting of engine cylinder head and head gasket. By using the software system, several jobs, such as working condition analysis from preloading to outburst operation, structural analysis and steady-state thermal analysis, and thermo-structure coupling analysis, were carried out. The results studied in this paper provide a new idea and method for the finite element analysis of composite structure between engine cylinder head and head gasket.
