Abstract

The present study involves the validation of the MPS meshless methodology for the simulation of oil piston cooling jets in a high performance engine application. A comparison between the approach using PARTICLEWORKS software implementing the MPS meshless method and the results obtained using STAR CCM+ software that implements the traditional finite volume calculation method with VOF multiphase model and Overset mesh will be presented. The MPS methodology makes it possible to quickly evaluate several different piston cooling configurations and geometries in early stage of engine design process.
