Combating Heat in Automobiles Using Computational Fluid Dynamics

Posted by | Posted on:

Automobiles are largely composed of components that directly or indirectly possess relationship with heat transfer. Although heat is essentially required to churn out power from the engine, rest of the components are being incorporated to accommodate or transfer the generated heat, once it completes the job of producing necessary power.

An overheated engine would eventually seize and stop generating power

The efficiency of the automobile is largely dependent on successful utilization as well as evacuation of the heat from different components apart from the engine. Once the heat becomes uncontrollable, the components can get damaged and affect the overall performance. An overheated engine would eventually seize and stop generating power, requiring an effective cooling system. Cooling system on the other hand relies on effectiveness of the coolant and radiator.
