Engine Cooling System Design for Heavy Duty Trucks 770023
A computational model is constructed for an engine cooling system for a heavy duty truck. The required performance data for the key model elements of engine, fan and radiator is discussed. An example is given for the cooling design engineer to demonstrate the principle use of the model in predicting cooling ATB performance and fan noise dB(A) contribution. The use of the model in analyzing vehicle wind tunnel cooling performance data is discussed.
