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).
