With many corporations and suppliers conducting development and validation tests at different Climatic Wind Tunnel sites, there is an increasing need for a recommended best practice that defines a process by which climatic wind tunnels can be correlated. This document addresses the test methods and metrics used to obtain similar results, independent of location, for Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and Powertrain Cooling (PTC) development. This document should be used as a guideline to make sure key aspects of tunnel testing are covered when comparing various climatic wind tunnel facilities.
The depth of the correlation program is ultimately influenced by program objectives. Therefore a correlation program, for the intent and purposes of this document, can range from just a few tests to a full analysis that involves multiple vehicle tests identifying limitations and statistical boundaries. Using recommendations in this document will eliminate most of the items that effect facility mismatch in a correlation program.
This document has been declared "Stabilized" by the SAE Interior Climate Control Steering Committee and will no longer be subjected to periodic reviews for currency. Certain references are being deleted as they are not publicly available. It has been determined by the committee that there is no longer any customer pull for further maintenance, review or revision to the standard.

Interior Climate Control Vehicle OEM Committee
The Interior Climate Control OEM Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports that serve as guidelines for technicians who service mobile air conditioning systems and operate refrigerant recycling equipment as it applies to automobiles, light trucks and other vehicles with similar R12 systems. Participants in the SAE Interior Climate Control Standards Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
