HEAT TRANSFER IN A PISTON OF A FOUR STROKE DIESEL ENGINE

A design tool for analyzing heat flow rates through pistons is presented. Tests on a Petter PJIW engine were carried out over a range of conditions covering different fuel inputs, speeds, boost pressures and intake temperatures. The calculated mean heat transfer rates through the piston tend to support the trends suggested by Annand's semi-analytical correlation. /GMRL/
