Thermal Management is a significant challenge in the design of modern vehicles and a well designed cooling system is vital in overcoming this challenge. Designing and optimising for packaging space restrictions, powertrain architecture variations and thermal loads is essential.
The Cooling Systems Modelling packages from Flowmaster enable you to model your cooling system and optimise its design before building the real thing, whether you vary the design parameters of the thermostat to ensure a constant temperature in the cooling system or resize key components to packaging constrains.
Modelling Cooling systems in Flowmaster can allow you to evaluate the following:
- The impact of components for different suppliers on the overall cooling system
- The effects of different operating conditions; warm-up cycles in winter
- The sizing of the expansion tank or de-gas bottle and its effects on performance
