ABSTRACT
The paper presents an analysis of the fluid flow in the cooling system of an internal combustion engine with oposite pistons.The purpose of the work was to optimize the flow of fluid through the channels located in the engine block. Simulation studies and subsequent iterations were performed using Ansys Fluent software. Two-equation k-epsilon turbulence model was used in the simulation model. Boundary and initial conditions were taken from previously made simulations conducted in AVL Boost software. The average wall temperature of the cylinder and the temperature of the outer walls of the cylinder were assumed for simulations. The results of the analyzes were graphically illustrated by the speed streamline distribution of velocity fields and temperature.
