Abstract
The automotive cooling system and thermal control strategy are important in order to reduce the pollution emission, extend the life of the components and reduce the fuel consumption. The scope of this thesis is to achieve a minimum model that works properly and a small library with the necessary components that the model could be made with. This will be the base for a future Engine Cooling library that covers all the components demanded by Daimler Chrysler. This thesis is the description of the development of a basic Engine Cooling library and some test models. A simple engine cooling system is built and produces reasonable results. The given data to test the Engine Cooling model is for a complete model, for this reason the test of this... (More)
The automotive cooling system and thermal control strategy are important in order to reduce the pollution emission, extend the life of the components and reduce the fuel consumption. The scope of this thesis is to achieve a minimum model that works properly and a small library with the necessary components that the model could be made with. This will be the base for a future Engine Cooling library that covers all the components demanded by Daimler Chrysler. This thesis is the description of the development of a basic Engine Cooling library and some test models. A simple engine cooling system is built and produces reasonable results. The given data to test the Engine Cooling model is for a complete model, for this reason the test of this library is made checking that the results are reasonable. Some simple components were tested with real data separately, but not in the complete Engine Cooling system. The thesis work is a good base for a complete and useful Engine Cooling library. The next steps to follow are to build a more complex and realistic engine and radiator models. Some components will have to be added like holes, pipes and different kinds of bends. (Less)
