Heat transfer is a predominant factor in diesel engines, and it plays a major role in engine performance. Heat transfer occurs in diesel engine from cylinder to its outer casing of the engine. The experiment is conducted in Texvel diesel engine with elliptical piston profile and heat transfer analysis is carried out. This project is carried out by two methods, theoretical approach and numerical simulation. Theoretical approach is done with the calculation of pressure, temperature, and volume at each angle of crank rotation. Finally, the rate of heat transfer is calculated by correlation. Numerical simulation is done by analyzing the elliptical piston profile using ANSYS software. Modeling and heat transfer analysis are performed. Finally, the numerical and theoretical results are compared. On comparison, numerical results are well agreed with the theoretical results.
