Study of Diesel Fuel Heating by Intelligent Materials under Transient High Pressure
This paper gives a way which utilizes the intelligent heating materials to preheat diesel fuel in the high-pressure tube in order to improve the cold starting and emissions of engine. A heating model of high-pressure tube was brought forward, and the pressure of tube was measured at a Diesel engine as the computational boundary condition. The unsteady heat transfer was simulated using the computational fluid dynamics by the temperature field and heating effect. Simulation results show that the diesel fuel temperature could improve by the right heating size and temperature in the high-pressure tube.
