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.
Rationale: Corrections were made to grammar and punctuation. A suggestion was added to 4.1 regarding verification of test equipment durability in regards to the test plan. A comment was added to 5.3 to specify simultaneous 3-axis testing, if possible. References to cancelled document SAE J2676 were removed and replaced with SAE J1726, Charge Air Cooler Internal Cleanliness, Leakage, and Nomenclature.
