Performance improvement of Rail AC assembly by using CAE and CFD analysis 2020-28-0027

The aim of this paper is to analyze the Rail AC kit to meet the customer requirement. CFD analysis been carried out on the proposed design to find the airflow on condenser and blower side. Based on the analysis result, design modification been done to improve the air flow on condenser and evaporator side thereby improve the cooling capacity of the unit. CAE analysis been carried out to strengthen mount brackets. There is improvement on the modal frequency and stress result after the design modification. Based on the final modified design, proto is developed and tested and found OK which is verified with CAE/CFD result. CAE analysis been carried out using Abaqus software and CFD using star CCM+.
