Hi Guys, This is for my university project.I need to design a oil tank for the formula student car.The first stage is the analysis of the existing stock oil tank (Aprilia SXV 550 is the engine).I need to find out the heat lost/transferred from the of the existing oil tank.How can I calculate the inlet and exit temperature of the Lubricating oil(passing through the tank). I need to do the corresponding heat loss calculations happening through the oil tank. I will be considering all the modes of heat transfer Conduction,Convection and Radiation. Please tell me How can I justify that a particular value of heat is lost from the oil tank with the help of calculations.And what formulas of heat transfer should i use (Fourier's,Newton's Law of cooling ...?) What is the suitable FEA package that can be used for justifying my results...?
