The thermal loss angle error analysis and maximum pressure determination method analysis were conducted first. Then the polytropic exponent method, the inflection point analysis, the loss function method and the symmetry method were utilized under different rotating speed, load and cooling water temperature, to calculate TDC in D6114 diesel engine and the results were compared with TDC position measured under the same condition with direct method of measurement. The study proved that (1) thermal loss angle of the diesel engine ranges from -1.0 ~ -0.6°CA; (2) Thermal loss angle is mainly affected by rotating speed and is reducing when rotate speed increases;(3) the symmetry method is generally the optimum for calculating the thermal loss angle of automotive diesel engines, with an error within 0.2°CA.
