Computer Program for Engine Cooling Radiator Selection 710209
A computer program for selecting a radiator to provide a desired level of engine cooling, and for predicting the engine cooling performance with this radiator, has been formulated. The program is based upon the relationship of laboratory heat rejections to the in-car heat rejection of a baseline engine.
Described are the methods of obtaining the engine heat rejection and the application of this information to the computer program. Comments concerning the benefits as well as the limitations of using this technique are included.
