Abstract: ABSTRACTIn order to better understand and control the engine lube oil consumption (LOC) during the engine development process, manufacturers request quantitative LOC estimations by numerical simulation. This paper presents a study performed by MAHLE Metal Leve simulation team, in order to explore the level of confidence and reliability of available commercial LOC simulation codes. An initial validation using engine test results was carried-out and some parametric studies were performed to estimate the influen…
