Abstract

In the first part of this study, a one-dimensional quasi-steady-state heat transfer model is developed for an axial forced flow system in rotary combustion engines. This computer model is useful in optimizing the cooling system in accordance with the heat input from the combustion chambers. In the second part of this study, a two-dimensional quasi-steady-state heat transfer model is developed for an axial forced flow cooling system in a rotor housing in an effort to minimize the thermal stresses and the thermal distortions of the trochoidal surfaces. In the third part of this study, a two-dimensional transient heat transfer model is developed for an axial forced flow cooling system in a critical portion of the rotor housing in order to determine the critical thermal loads that occur in the through-bolts during the sudden acceleration of a cold rotating combustion engine.
