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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
