Airside Systems

Accurate thermal systems’ modelling is dependent on the ability to model the air flow through the cooling pack for a range of transient operating conditions. Flowmaster Automotive Airside Systems Modelling package enable you to optimise the interactions of close-coupled heat exchangers using automatic air flow path segmentation.

Key System Modelling & Simulation Features:

  • Automatic heat exchanger segmentation and viewing for accurate air flow rate and pressure drop calculation
  • Steady State and Transient flow analysis using a wide range of heat transfer options
  • Automatic heat exchanger segmentation and viewing foraccurate air flow rate and pressure drop calculation
  • 3D visualisation of the cooling pack layout
  • Wide range of Airside specific components including;
  • Three-way flap valve, Fan drives, HVAC blower, Radiator shutter and Fan component

Scenario where Flowmaster can be used to provide a solution:

  • Investigating a non-uniform blockage of your heat exchanger through imposing loss coefficient profiles by integrating non-uniform air flow in the cooling pack design
