This paper presents a novel algebraic wall-modeled large-eddy simulation (WMLES) approach for wall heat transfer (WHT) in internal combustion engines (ICE) using recent high-fidelity simulation data from two real ICE and a flame-wall interaction (FWI) setup. The model formulation is based on intuitive arguments rather than simplified forms of near-wall governing equations. Input information from the two wall-normal wall-adjacent nodes is used, facilitating the interpretation of the local state of the thermal boundary layer (TBL). With filtered direct numerical simulation (DNS) data (i.e. a ?perfect? LES), model performance is evaluated locally at different near-wall resolutions. The proposed model is compared to a widely used wall function (WF) approach and to a data-driven model.
