A Process for Modeling and Analysis of Prototyped Products and its Application to a Variable Fan Drive 2002-01-0763

It is not uncommon for complex engineering products to undergo several design iterations due to changing market expectations or inadequate performance. In such circumstances, a prototype is generally available that could be used for performance analysis before a revision to the design is made. The availability of a prototype can be an invaluable tool for the analysis of the impact of potential design changes on the system performance. In this paper, a process is proposed for the derivation of a physical model that could be used for design analysis. The process uses model identification for determination of model complexity and numerical optimization for estimation of model parameters.
This process is applied to a new pneumatic fan clutch system that has been developed to improve the efficiency of engine temperature regulation in heavy-duty commercial vehicles. This system is currently in a prototype phase and its detailed physical model is required for design trade-off analysis
