Impact of wall heat transfer on engine behavior

The effect of thermal wall functions is discussed in terms of engine thermal balance, thermal state characterization and impact on engine performance. In particular, the newly implemented GruMo-UniMORE wall function is applied to improve the prediction of knock limit in SI engines and combustion behavior in CI engines.
