Thermal Design Evaluation of Construction Vehicles using a Simulation Based Methodology 2015-01-2888

Design and evaluation of construction equipments and vehicles in the construction industry constitute a very important but expensive and time consuming part of the engineering process on account of large number of variants of prototypes and low production volumes associated with each variant.
In this article, we investigate an alternative approach to the hardware testing based design process by implementing a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation based methodology that has the potential to reduce the cost and time of the entire design process.
The simulation results were compared with test data and good agreement was observed between test data and simulation.
