Test Method for Measuring Performance of Engine Cooling Fans

2019-02-15
WIP
J1339
This SAE Recommended Practice is intended for use in testing and evaluating the approximate performance of engine-driven cooling fans. This performance would include flow, pressure, and power. This flow and pressure information is used to estimate the engine cooling performance. This power consumption is used to estimate net engine power per SAE J1349. The procedure also provides a general description of equipment necessary to measure the approximate fan performance. The test conditions in the procedure generally will not match those of the installation for which cooling and fuel consumption information is desired. The performance of a given fan depends on the geometric details of the installation, including the shroud and its clearance. These details should be duplicated in the test setup if accurate performance measurement is expected.

Laboratory Testing of Light-Duty Vehicle Electric Cooling Fan Assemblies for Airflow Performance

2019-02-13
CURRENT
J2867_201902
This SAE recommended practice is intended for use in testing and evaluating the performance of light-duty automotive electric engine cooling fan assemblies. These Electric Cooling Fan (ECF) assemblies are purchased by light-duty truck and passenger car OEMs from suppliers. They are purchased as complete assemblies, consisting mainly of the fan(s), motor(s), and shroud (see Figure 1); this Recommended Practice will only consider such complete assemblies. Some purchased assemblies using brush-type motors may also include digital control devices such as power resistors or pulse width modulation (PWM) electronics or local interconnect network (LIN) for speed control. In the case of brushless motor technology, the controller is an integral part of the motor where it also performs the commutation process electronically. The performance measurement would include fan output in terms of airflow and pressure, and fan input electric power in terms of voltage and current.

Test Method for Determining Power Consumption of Engine Cooling Fan Drive Systems

2017-06-26
CURRENT
J1342_201706
The techniques outlined in this SAE Recommended Practice were developed as part of an overall program for determining and evaluating fuel consumption of heavy-duty trucks and buses, but it is applicable to off highway vehicles as well. It is recommended that the specific operating conditions be carefully reviewed on the basis of actual installation data. Cooling requirements are affected by all heat exchangers that are cooled by the fan drive system. These may include radiators, condensers, charge air coolers, oil coolers, and others. Because of the variation in size, shape, configuration, and mountings available in cooling fans and fan drive systems, specific test devices have not been included. Using known power/speed relationships for a given fan, this procedure can be used to calculate the fan drive system’s power consumption for engine cooling systems using fixed ratio, viscous or speed modulating, and mechanical on/off fan drives including electronically activated fan drives.

CURRENT
J1390_201706
Three levels of fan structural analysis are included in this practice: a Initial Structural Integrity b In-vehicle Testing c Durability (Laboratory) Test Methods The Initial Structural Integrity section describes analytical and test methods used to predict potential resonance and, therefore, possible fatigue accumulation. The In-vehicle (or machine) section enumerates the general procedure used to conduct a fan strain gage test. Various considerations that may affect the outcome of strain gage data have been described for the user of this procedure to adapt/discard depending on the particular application. The Durability Test Methods section describes the detailed test procedures for a laboratory environment that may be used depending on type of fan, equipment availability, and end objective. The second and third levels build upon information derived from the previous level.

This document supersedes SAE J819 - Engine Cooling System Field Test. The purpose of this SAE Recommended Practice is to establish a testing procedure to determine the performance capability of engine cooling systems, including charge air coolers, on heavy-duty vehicles with liquid-cooled internal combustion engines. The definition of heavy vehicles for this document includes, but is not limited to, on- and off-highway trucks, cranes, drill rigs, construction, forestry and agricultural machines. Vehicles equipped with side or rear-mounted radiators may require an alternate procedure of a towing dynamometer because of peculiar aerodynamics. Testing is generally conducted to determine compliance with cooling criteria established by the engine manufacturer or the end product user to meet a desired engine reliability goal.
