Design and Thermal Analysis of Engine Fins Using ANSYS Workbench

EasyChair Preprint no. 5801

7 pagesDate: June 15, 2021


Fins are one of the important part in IC engines to transfer the heat by providing more surface area. The purpose of this study is to implement a Design which improves the cooling rate of engine comparing to the existing engine fin design and also to analyze the various fin design to know finalize the better design which have more effectiveness. The complete design of the Engine cylinder with fins is to be implemented in CATIA V5 software. In the design the effectiveness of cooling of engine can be improved by providing more surface area at the top of the engine and surface area gradually decreases from top fin to bottom most fin ,this is due to combustion initiated at the top of the cylinder where high temperatures occurred comparing to the bottom most point of cylinder. And the results are analyzed by conducting steady state thermal analysis using ANSYS workbench. Final results includes the Temperature distribution and Heat flux distribution to compare the  efficient cooling rate of better design.

Keyphrases: ANSYS Workbench, CATIA V5, Combustion, effectiveness, Fins, heat flux, heat flux distribution, surface area
