The main function of the cooling system is to control the temperature of the engine components and improve the performance of an engine. To know the flow and temperature distribution in the jacket cooling system for 6 cylinder diesel engine is analyzed using 1 dimensional method by using GT-Suite 1D simulation software package. The present work employs 1D simulation of water jacket in GT-ISE to perform a comprehensive study of mass-flow and thermal distribution over the inlet of the cooling package of a selected engine in several steady state operating points. The results show, that the suggested predictive method successfully captures the thermal effect of recirculation while reducing the necessity for calibration done by prototype testing.
Key words: GT-Suite / 1 Dimensional / Calibration / water-jacket
