UNSPECIFIED (1997) The application of PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) and flow visualisation to the coolant flow through an automotive engine.

This paper is concerned with the study of fluid flows through a cylinder head of an automotive engine. The study is performed by means of low visualisation and velocity measurement, using an optical technique named Particle Image Velocimetry. The cylinder head is a transparent model, which can be constructed from transparent resin materials by vacuum casting and/or rapid prototyping methods. The results highlight the general features of the flow, such as laminar movement, vortices, stagnation and turbulence. Flow velocities between 0.2 and 5 m/s, with a maximum error of 5% can be obtained.
