Cooling System Development of Light Commercial Vehicle 2009-01-1467
Presented here is the cooling system development of Ford Transit vehicle with 200 PS five cylinder engine by Ford Otosan engineers. After 140 PS Ford four cylinders engine, 200 PS engine was developed, completely new and more powerful cooling system was required. CFD studies were carried out to decide about the cooling pack details. UH3D CFD model was developed. Based on given radiator, condenser and fan performance data, engine heat rejection, coolant flow rate, top hose temperature were determined. CAE studies were done for different radiator sizes, different bumper slots and different fan sizes. Based on CFD studies it was decided what to test in the wind tunnel. Vehicle tests were done to verify cooling pack performance.
