Conjugate Heat Transfer

Conjugated heat transfer simulation of a CVT

Within this work the thermal aspects of a continuously variable transmission (CVT) are investigated. Similar studies are hardly available in the current literature. Especially due to increasing engine power the design of a sufficient cooling system for the CVT is very important as the component temperatures are rising as well. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used to analyse the heat transfer effects within an enclosed CVT unit to ensure proper cooling.
