The Overview of Japanese Automotive Thermal Engineering Current Status 931103
In this paper, the current status of the Japanese automotive thermal engineering is stated for overseas engineers. The described contents are based on the paper, reports and comments in the proceedings and journals of the JSAE (SAE of Japan) during 1989 ∼ 1992.
The number of submitted papers related to thermal engineering in the JSAE conference during that period are as follows;
The number of published reports and comments in the journal of JSAE is 31 from 1989 to June 1992. Main conferences of JSAE usually open in spring and autumn annually, and the total number of JSAE members is about 27,000.
The papers are purely related to heat transfer in the engine field. Then, combustion, tribology, exhaust emission etc. are not included because of independence from thermal engineering itself.
In addition to mentioned above items, two detailed contents about automotive thermal engineering are explained.
Cooling and noise reduction of the engine compartment
