Introduction to Commercial and Off-Road Vehicle Cooling Airflow Systems
The goal of this two-day seminar is to introduce engineers and managers to the basic principles of cooling airflow systems for commercial and off-road vehicles. Participants will learn about vehicle/product constraints, integration issues, cooling airflow, system resistance, fans, shrouds, radiators, coolers, estimating heat rejection, thermal accumulation, air recirculation, system performance, and underhood airflow. Basic concepts will be reinforced with in-class discussion of case studies.Included in this seminar is the SAE paper A Systems Engineering Approach to EngineCooling Design; The 44th L. Ray Buckendale Lecture.
Note: A similar course is available on demand!
