The project deals with the numerical modeling of Heat transfer air flow in a Tube fin intercooler. The intercooler is air/air type and is used for the four stroke compression ignition engine with the total . The Solid works - CAD (Computer Aided Design) software is used for modeling of the 3D space geometrical model of the intercooler. The preprocessor Mesh generator is used for the creating of the needed computational mesh and the Flow simulation - CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software is then used for the simulation itself and the postprocessing. The Turbocharger inlet to the intercooler and the outlet to engine interface can be modified the concept here is to reduce the temperature of the air by obtaining maximum heat transfer For this we are optimizing the design of waved fin structure in the intercooler to Sine wave fins in both hot air domain and cold air domain By the simulation from the solid works flow simulation we can determine the pressure velocity and temperature distribution in the fluid volume and we can conclude the heat transfer
