Influence of Front End Vehicle, Fan and Shroud on the Heat Performance of A/C Condenser and Cooling Radiator 2002-01-1206
This study is the continuation of our study published in reference 1 concerning the cooling radiator performance on the vehicle. In addition to the last paper, two main parameters will be shown: the air velocity through the A/C condenser and its heat performance. They will be studied and presented, particularly,:
The influence of the cooling radiator (geometry and performance),
The influence of size and position of A/C condenser to the cooling radiator,
The influence of the electric fan (size, power and performance, fan on or fan off),
The influence of fan shroud (without fan shroud, with full fan shroud or with partial fan shroud),
The influence of vehicle (pressure coefficient, grill, size of air inlet, under-hood, size of under-hood air outlet, etc).
