Title: Automotive cooling airflow correlations
Author: Roseberry, Christopher M.
Abstract: The design of more efficient automotive cooling systems requires better understanding of the losses in fluid energy through the front end cooling openings . A wind tunnel study with simplified models has been conducted to investigate the factors effecting the cooling opening energy losses . The data from this study have been successfully correlated using newly defined dimensionless parameters . The influence of the studied geometrical factors is clearly identifiable with the data presented in dimensionless form . An algorithm has been devised which can accurately predict the behavior of a combination of cooling openings given the behavior of each of the openings operating individually .
