Laboratory Testing of Vehicle and Industrial Heat Exchangers for Durability Under Vibration-Induced Loading
This SAE Recommended Practice is applicable to all liquid-to-gas, liquid-to-liquid, gas-to-gas, and gas-to-liquid heat exchangers used in vehicle and industrial cooling systems. This document outlines the test to determine durability characteristics of the heat exchanger from vibration-induced loading.
This document has been converted to Word format and corrections have been made to spelling, punctuation, and grammar. SAE J2679, Charge Air Cooler Leakage, has been added to the list of applicable publications in section 2.1.1 and it has been specified in section 5.7 as the method of determining leaks in charge air coolers. A suggestion to filter road cycle data has been added to section 5.3.1 to reduce test time.
