# Calculation Of Exhaust Energy

05/17/2016 6:52 AM

I have data of exhaust energy and energy dissipated to cooling circuits in a engine at full rated load.

Now I have to calculate exhaust energy and energy dissipated to cooling circuits at different loads.

Can you please guide me how should I proceed with the calculation.

Using the concept of an energy balance: Input = output + accumulation.

How can we find the accumulated energy?

Accumulation energy is related to which factors. Please give some formula if it is there.

and if not please tell the process for calculation.

There is no accumulation in the case of an engine.

Please explain why the fundamental concept of Conservation of Energy is an insufficient explanation for the methodology of carrying out an energy balance.

Use algebra!

It might be proportional!

Your answer says you are uncertain. You are saying it might be propotional and after that you are talking about common sense.

Yeah and others call it my punch line!

Or the easier way around, get IR cam, some features let you know how much exhaust energy is going out your engine. some call it flux.

Based on your replies to my esteemed colleagues' suggestions, my advice is to return to your university texts and notes and remind yourself of some basic second year thermodynamics.

If after doing this, you still cannot proceed, I suggest you seek some tutoring.

None of us are able to provide equations for you as we do not have the details of the system in question. The basics of the required approach are given in the previous posts.

Just assume it's proportional.

That should make the math easy.

If it's actually critical to have an exact proportional calculation at different loads, I imagine someone else would have been given this assignment.

Thank you for your response. But I am said that it won't be propotional and I have to calculate the exact energy in exhaust gas and cooling circuit. Is there any way in which I can do it?

Take lyn's advice. Any deviation from proportional will be small, and how would anybody know? It would take some quite sophisticated measurements to try to find the actual figures.

If your cooling circuits are designed for full load, anything less than that is not a problem...anything greater than that is beyond design limits...
