A computational fluid dynamics code is applied to simulate fluid flow and combustion in a four-stroke single cylinder engine with flat combustion chamber geometry. Heat flux and heat transfer coefficient on the cylinder head, cylinder wall, piston, intake and exhaust valves are determined. Result for a certain condition is compared for total heat transfer coefficient of the cylinder engine with available correlation proposed by experimental measurement in the literature and close agreement is observed. It is observed that the value of heat flux and heat transfer coefficient varies considerably in different positions of the combustion chamber, but the trend with crank angle is almost the same.
