BLOWERS FOR AIR COOLED ENGINES 660351

This paper presents a method of designing a centrifugal blower and scroll for an air cooled engine. Guidelines for the selection of a blade shape and proportioning of the blower entrance and discharge sizes are given. The test data analysis used to match blower performance with the engine cooling requirements is discussed. Some advanced techniques to optimize an air cooling system are presented.
The blower design concepts given in this paper are also applicable to systems other than an air cooled engine.
