Conjugate heat transfer for cylinder head

Cylinder head temperatures are critical for understanding engine performance and durability. Accurate predictions of head temperatures are difficult due to the amount of physics interacting with the head. These interactions such as heat release due to combustion, valve heat transfer and friction, internal and external cooling, and oil splash cooling all contribute to head temperatures. To predict head temperature, a conjugate heat transfer (CHT) analysis integrating all of the interactions was performed.

The Mercedes-Benz Concept IAA

When the Mercedes-Benz management decided in late summer 2014 to build the Concept IAA (Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile) show car for the 2015 Frankfurt Automobile Show, it was clear that this would be a very challenging year for all involved groups like stylists, CAD-designers, manufacturers and aerodynamic engineers.
