Thermal Analysis Of Engine Fins Varying Different Geometry And Material



The Engine cylinder is one of the major automobile components, which is subjected to hightemperature variations. In order to cool the cylinder, fins are provided on the surface of 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. We know that, by increasing the surface area we can increase the heat dissipation rate. The main purpose of using these cooling fins is to cool the engine cylinder by air. In this thesis, using materials and Aluminium alloy i.e. AL 6061, AL he15, 8011a-H111 are also analysed. Thermal analysis is done using all the three materials by changing geometries, for the actual model of the cylinder fin body. The analysis done by using ANSYS work bench. The 3D modelling software used is solid works. By using materials and Aluminum alloys which have higher thermal conductivities.
