Prediction of the Performance of the Engine Cooling Fan with CFD Simulation 2010-01-0548

The technology concerning thermo and fluid dynamics is one of the important fields which have made great progress along with rapid advance in computational resources. Especially, the CFD technology has been proved as successful contribution to the development of the engine cooling system. Therefore, this technology is widely used at early phase of the vehicle development. However, a serious problem has been remained that it does not always give practical precision. Particularly, the cooling fan is one of the primary components in the cooling system to determine the performance, while practical calculation method without depending on large resources has not established.
