Unsteady surface heat-flux and temperature profiles in the transient, compressible, low Mach number, turbulent boundary layer typically found in internal combustion engines have been determined by numerically integrating a linearized form of the one-dimensional energy equation. An empirical relation for μt/μ has been used to consider turbulent conductivity. Approximate solutions have been acquired by multiparameter fits to the numerical solutions. Comparisons of the approximate solutions with motored engine experiments show good agreement.
