Only transient simulation allows using the full potential of computer aided engineering regarding component sizing & packaging.
For the simulation of realistic temperature profiles the thermal capacities of the engine should be considered.
In this example the existing engine component from KULI drive is remodeled using the primitive components point mass and heat conduction. The engine can be modeled as two direct masses and two indirect masses.The direct masses are heated by combustion processes, and exchange heat with each other, the oil and the water circuit respectively, the ambient air and with the indirect masses. The indirect masses exchange heat via conduction with their respective direct mass only.Usable from release: KULI 8.0-1.04
