Effectiveness of a thermal protective coating for automotive components

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The operating temperature of an automotive component that is in proximity to another high temperature component can be reduced by application of a coating that has an emissivity that is lower than that of the component. This is most effective under conditions of low convective cooling, high source temperatures and low coating emissivity. Further work is needed to experimentally verify the simulations.
