Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the thermal stresses experienced by a V8 cylinder block of a four stroke CI engine at a specific point in time during the engine’s operation. Two case studies were performed for the cylinder block with different materials. Aluminum A356 T6 and Iron Cast are the materials used in these case studies for the cylinder block. Pressures and temperatures were applied only to the design’s cylinder walls, which were produced by each stroke, with no lubrication or cooling systems used. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 firing order of the engine is taken into account in the design simulation. Various factors i.e., safety factor, stress, displacement, reaction force, strain, temperature, heat flux, thermal gradient is analyzed for each material of cylinder block. Fusion 360 software is used for the analysis.

Keywords: Cylinder block, four stroke CI engine, thermal analysis, structural analysis, simulation, stress, strain, displacement, mechanics, automobile, car
