SAE 2014 Commercial Vehicle Engineering Congress

Technical Session Schedule

Tuesday, October 7

Thermal Systems
(Session Code: CV303)

Room 42  8:00 a.m.

This session covers advanced technologies and analysis/design/testing techniques related to cooling system performance. It includes both system-level and component-level contents. Market conditions and government legislation are driving the demand for more power, better fuel economy and lower emissions. Simultaneously, the space available for arranging cooling systems is shrinking. These performance and emissions constraints emphasize the need for integrated engine/vehicle procedures or techniques for developing cooling systems and problem solving. This session is designed to examine the trends in cooling system design and implementation strategies to meet these new requirements.

Organizers - Ashraf A. Farag, Navistar; Timothy Prochnau, John Deere Power Systems; Qin Yang, Navistar Inc.
