New Design of Cooling System with Computer Simulation and Engine Compartment Simulator 931075
The engine cooling system is required to provide much higher performance today owing to the improved power output of engines and the trend toward a more compact engine compartment. For front engine/rear drive vehicles equipped with a fluid coupling drive fan, one of the main problems that must be dealt with is the rise in coolant temperature during idling. This paper presents a new method to simulate the engine coolant temperature under idling condition, and an improved engine cooling system that features a totally redesigned fan blade for maximum efficiency. This new system, consisting of a high performance cooling fan shroud and coupling, achieves a substantial noise reduction and contributes to fuel economy and power output improvements.
