The Thermo-Test and Mathematics Model Study on Automobile Tube-Core-Fin Radiator
.In order to improve the performance of automobile tube-core-fin radiator, the thermo-test and mathematics model method were combined together to study heat transfer and air resistance. The mathematics model was built including heat transfer and air resistance coefficient criterion equations in the certain Reynolds number range. The maximum relative error between results calculated from mathematics model and test values is less than 6.61%. The number of tube rows of the radiator can affect heat transfer and air resistance coefficient through analyzing results.
