Abstract

The engine cylinder is one of the major automobile components which is subjected to high temperature variations. In order to cool the cylinder, an extended surface which is commonly known as fins are provided on cylinder to increase the rate of heat transfer from the system to surrounding. It is helpful to know the heat dissipation inside cylinder. In this project, we are considering the Apache 160cc model fins to increase the heat transfer. Presently material used for manufacturing fin body is Aluminium Alloy 6061 which has thermal conductivity of 151–202 W/m k. In this thesis, using copper alloy which has thermal conductivity of 401w/m k, magnesium alloy which has thermal conductivity of 156w/m k are also analysed. Fins with various thickness and configuration of fins such as fins with holes, rectangular notches and V-notch are also modelled by CATIA V5R20 to increase the heat dissipation rate by selecting suitable material. Thermal analysis on the I.C. Engine fin is done by ANSYS workbench 14.0
