Heat Transfer 3D Model Development for Exhaust Downpipe

What is our offer to you?

Imagine being surrounded everyday by a diverse, fun, and passionate group of colleagues who you not only enjoy working with but also enjoy eating lunch, having fika, and travelling with. Now imagine that you work with these colleagues on some of the most advanced powertrain technology in the world. Add that you are working with these colleagues on this advanced technology in a culture that promotes growth, collaboration, trust and is striving towards zero emissions in everything we do!

Are you ready to join our team and shape the future of the transportation industry together with us?

Description of thesis work

Aim: A Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulation study on EATS to investigate heat transfer in exhaust pipe to the ambient.

Scope of your mission
  • Investigation of heat loss to the ambient with different insulation materials​ on engine to EATS downpipe.
  • Evaluating different insulators​.
  • Assessing the usage of combination of multiple insulators​.
  • Evaluation and parametrization of the thickness of the insulation material effect on heat transfer​.
  • Understanding the effect of change in pipe thickness and pipe length on overall heat loss​.
  • Approximation of the effect of the wind (Truck’s velocity) on heat transfer and develop a correlation for different wind speeds.
  • Star CCM, Ansa.
  • Period: 1 semester, 30 hp credits
  • Starting date: Flexible
  • Language: English
  • Number of students: Suitable for 1-2 students
  • Location: Volvo Group Trucks Technology (Powertrain Engineering), Lundby, Gothenburg, Sweden.
Who are you?

We don’t know you yet, but we believe that you are a person that would like to work with focus on building products for a sustainable future. We believe you are well organized and structure with the curiosity for exploring new technologies and improving existing ones. As you will lead your own work, we believe you have leading skills, a true holistic view but also a set of key competences in 3D simulation and quickly learn and develop in the areas of Powertrain and EATS. The ability to balance and prioritize are also important skills.
