20 CFD Analysis

21  20 mm inlet diameter (19 mm for E85) creates choked flow conditions, limiting total mass airflow to engine  Required by competition rules  Keeps engine power at a safe level for competition  Design goal is to minimize loss coefficient through restrictor geometry to allow maximum airflow into engine  Supersonic Converging – Diverging Nozzle Geometry  Expand out diverging section to allow for proper shock development to minimize loss coefficient  Keep diffuser angle low enough to avoid potential flow separation  Keep overall length low to reduce viscous losses due to surface friction and boundary layer growth Intake Restrictor

22  2 -Dimensional Axis-Symmetric analysis allows for fast solving time with refined mesh in areas of shock development Intake Restrictor

23  Air flows from throttle to engine intake port through intake manifold  Intake Plenum  Acts as air reservoir for engine to draw air from during intake stroke  Primary purpose is to damp out pressure pulses from intake stroke to create steady flow conditions at the restrictor  Intake Runner  Path through which engine pulls air from the plenum into the combustion chamber during intake stroke  Length decided by harmonic frequency at various engine operating speeds, can be used to create a resonant “tuning point” Intake Manifold

24  Transient Pressure Boundary Condition used to simulate pressure pulses within manifold from intake stroke  Piecewise-Linear Approximation used for initial analysis trouble-shooting  End analysis will use pressure trace measured during Dynamometer Testing Intake Manifold

25  Component Simulation  Shroud structure analyzed to ensure uniform airflow distribution across radiator face and verify proper mass airflow through radiator  Radiator modeled as a material resistance with heat addition and flow re-direction to properly simulate airflow through core Cooling System Airflow

26  Full Car Simulation to verify shroud is receiving adequate airflow  Simulation model still in progress, needs additional geometry and refinement Cooling System Airflow

27 Cooling System

28 Cooling System Schematic Surge Tank Overflow Tank Steam from Cylinder Head Engine Block Water Pump Fan Radiator Thermostat

29  Rule of thumb: 1.1 in 2 radiator surface area needed per hp produced  Therefore need approx. 66 in 2  Radiator from YFZ450R Yamaha ATV  7.5” H x 11.5” W x 7/8” D  Surface Area in 2  Inlet and Outlet ¾” ID tubing to connect to water pump Radiator Outlet to Water Pump Inlet from Engine Modify for bleed line to Surge Tank

30  Coolant naturally builds to approximately psi  Normal production cars run psi, high performance cars run psi, and racing systems run psi  Pressurizing the water allows for the water to reach a higher temperature before boiling (therefore vaporizing)  Part# T30R Radiator Cap PSI Pressure (PSI)Boiling Point (° F) 0 PSI 212° F 10 PSI 239° F 20 PSI 259° F 30 PSI273° F 40 PSI 286° F 50 PSI 297° F Radiator Cap

31  Typically a 1 quart container  Need to modify the part of the Radiator that currently has the cap and overflow line to run a ¼”- 3 / 8 ” bleed line from radiator to top of surge tank  ½” – ¾” Refill line from bottom of surge tank to inlet of water pump  Benefits – de-aeration  2% air in the system leads to an 8% decrease in cooling efficiency  4% air in the system leads to a 38% decrease in cooling efficiency! Surge Tank Bleed line inlet from radiator and cylinder head Outlet to overflow tank Refill line back to water pump 30 PSI Pressurized Radiator Cap

32  Comes stock on engine  No internal bypass system. Thermostat will have to regulate continual water flow through engine  ¾” ID inlet and outlet tubing to connect to radiator Water Pump Flow Rate vs. RPM from R6 water pump Need to test flow rate once we have the cylinder head again

33  Placed at the outlet of the engine, a thermostat allows water to circulate through the block, but doesn’t allow this water to circulate through the radiator until it has reached proper operating temperature  This temperature (195°F) melts the “wax motor”, which forces the thermostat piston to open and allows the water to flow through.  If the engine’s temperature is lowered too much, the piston closes until it has reached proper operating temperature once again Thermostat  Stewart/Robert Shaw Thermostats – 302  Augments bypass system  $14.95

34 Cooling System Data  Reviewed three sets of autocross runs with different drivers

35  Verify radiator is receiving adequate airflow at low speeds  SPAL Axial Fan  11” Dia.  CFM  Based on predicted power require minimum 450 CFM  Based on airflow at speed available require minimum 500 CFM  Maximum 7” Dia. to fit radiator  Yamaha R6 Fan  5.5” Dia.  Est. >500 CFM Fan
