APP87: Thermal Management of Next Generation Rotary Engine Power System

Project ID APP87
Website
Start Date Mon 2004-Feb-09 09:06:39

Abstract As the MEMS Rotary Engine Power System project team designs a larger engine (1500mm3) with increased power output, it may no longer possible to rely on natural convection for engine cooling. An active thermal management system is necessary to regulate engine temperature and to reject waste heat. This project will model the increased thermal load of the more powerful, fuel flexible, next generation rotary engine; analyze cooling options; and provide feedback to the design of the rotor, endplates, fuel vaporizer, air preheater, and rotor housing. This project entails essential steps necessary for successful development of the next generation rotary engine.
