SAE 2014 Thermal Management Systems Symposium

Technical Session Schedule

Monday, September 22

Thermal Systems and Components
(Session Code: TMSS300)

Room TBD  

Thermal Management represents one of the key aspects of the vehicle development. It ensures that the temperatures in the underhood and underbody areas are in desired ranges, that thermal systems operate as designed, and that no component operation is at risk due to excessive temperatures. This session covers the design of thermal components and systems and their vehicle integration.
