A computer program has been developed to predict the heat transfer characteristics and the temperature distribution in the cylinder block. The finite element method is employed to handle the complex geometries associated with the practical cylinder block. In this study, the thermal behavior characteristics of the cylinder blocks that formed with integral, V-shaped, W-shaped were analyzed, using the 3-dimensional finite element method. Before numerical analysis were conducted. In this study, the changes of the thermal temperatures are analyzed according to the structures and the times due to the forms of the three cylinder blocks of automobiles.
Keywords: Cylinder Block, Finite Element Analysis, Heat Transfer, V-Shaped, W-Shaped
