Study of Influence of MRF Method on the Prediction of the Engine Cooling Fan Performance 2011-01-0648
MRF method is commonly used for predicting cooling performance to design vehicle engine cooling systems. Especially, the practical prediction of the cooling fan performance is one of the important issues. In the design phase of the vehicle development, combinations of multiple parameters are generally examined. Therefore, the steady RANS coupled with MRF method is indispensable. However, unfortunately, the current method does not always give enough accuracy to practical vehicle design. Thus, this paper describes that the method to determine adequate MRF-region to predict the fan performance in practical accuracy.
