This paper presents an analysis of the results of simulation studies of optimisation of water channel geometry placed in the head of an opposed-piston three-cylinder engine. For this purpose, six computation cases were prepared, differing in shape and cross-section field of channels located along the axis of one of the cylinders. The research was conducted by means of Ansys Flutent software. The conditions of initiation and boundary have been obtained from previous studies using AVL Boost RT software. A fixed temperature was assumed on the cylinder wall and a fixed temperature was assumed for the coolant at the inlet to the model. The studies were carried out for the model of the designed engine, which carries out a two-stroke diesel cycle. The engine will be equipped with direct injection of diesel fuel. On the basis of the conducted analysis of the test results, the flow velocity distributions and distributions of speed fields of the working medium in the critical cross-sections, the distribution of temperature and heat flow fields were prepared. Pressure drops and heat dissipation were also determined for individual models. This provided the basis for the determination of the influence of the rib's transverse geometry shape on the amount of heat received from the cylinder's smoothing walls.
