Design and Analysis of Engine Cylinder Fins of Varying Geometry and Materials.
Mr. Manir Alam, Mrs. M. Durga Sushmitha, , ,
The Engine cylinder is one of the major automobile components, which is subjected to high temperature variations and thermal stresses. In order to cool the cylinder, fins are provided on the cylinder to increase the rate of heat transfer. By doing thermal analysis on the engine cylinder fins, it is helpful to know the heat dissipation inside the cylinder. The principle implemented in this project is to increase the heat dissipation rate by using the invisible working fluid, nothing but air. We know that, by increasing the surface area we can increase the heat dissipation rate, so designing such a large complex engine is very difficult. The main purpose of using these cooling fins is to cool the engine cylinder by air. Presently Material used for manufacturing cylinder fin body is Cast Iron. In this thesis, using materials Copper and Aluminium alloy 6082 are also analyzed. Thermal analysis is done using all the three materials by changing geometries, distance between the fins and thickness of the fins for the actual model of the cylinder fin body.
