A Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) model has been developed to simulate vehicle heater system performance during standard wind tunnel tests and more complicated city traffic cycle tests. This CAE model is continuously enhanced and expanded to account for more up-to-date technologies, such as auxiliary heater system, supplemental heat strategies, and supplemental water pump.
The objectives of this paper is to describe a CAE tool which is capable of predicting the vehicle average interior air temperature, average discharge air temperature, and heater core coolant inlet temperature. The results of several applications will be shown.
