Heat Transfer Analysis Of A Piston CAEmate

Project Description

This transient thermal analysis shows the temperature distribution in an aluminium piston. At the top of the device a fixed temperature is applied, while the external surface is subject to convective heat flux. Observing a piston cross-section, it is easy to notice the influence of the geometry on the heat transfer.

Project Highlights

  • Transient thermal analysis
  • Imposed temperature
