Research Motivating Problem:
The cooling demand for heavy vehicles has increased and the cooling package placed in the front can not deliver the required amount of cooling.
- Install an angled heat exchanger to increase the heat transfer rate. Research question(s):
- What is the most suitable heat exchanger angle to obtain a low pressure drop over it and to increase the heat transfer rate?
- Which angle the heat exchanger should be mounted in a vehicle.
- A method to simulate pressure drop and heat transfer rate for angled heat exchangers, in 1D and 3D.
