This second part now provides the numerical analyses of the flow mechanics involved to correlate and explain the experimental observations of the first part, and most importantly, quantifies the potential reduction in peak convective wall heat flux to be in the order of 50% compared to a combustion chamber design that represents current engine practice with homogeneous charge mixture and high turbulence but no particularly ordered motion, given identical injection timings, boundary conditions, and all other parameters in the CFD model.
In order to be consistent with observations of basal hydrology in Marie Byrd Land, the upper bound on the plume-derived geothermal heat flux is 150 milliwatts per square meter.
Lawton [3] measured the instantaneous heat flux at the surface of a cylinder head in a motored diesel engine at different speeds.
20] are the heat flux values estimated for the radial distance of 5, 8, 10, and 20 m (16.
The rate of change of local skin temperature is dependent on the local heat flux of the given body segment.
Residual Reunion plume material hotter than ambient mantle provided the necessary heat flux within the upper asthenosphere, contributing to enrich heterogeneous melting.
The thermal conductivity and volumetric specific heat of the mats were measured, and the influence of mixing ratio, density, and heat flux was evaluated.
In the solution information we put the analysis as a steady state thermal analysis and also we subjected our soapstone assembly to an amount of heat flux of 10 w/[m.
It is almost impossible to avoid localized boiling inside an EGR cooler and, in fact, it would not be strictly necessary when it is below the Critical Heat Flux (CHF).
Assuming as well a dimensionless heat flux profile f(x) within the contact area between wheel and workpiece, we have the following boundary condition:
