Hi Guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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 ().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).Aprilia SXV 550 is the engine

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...?
