Abstract:

The results of an analytical and experimental program for high-performance heavy-duty radiators is presented. Various heat transfer matrices were surveyed and analyzed to select optimum air-side surfaces. From this survey four surfaces were selected and four test cores were fabricated and tested. Performance of test cores yielded 6.7 to 20.5 percent increase in heat transfer performance over conventional radiator designs. An analysis of the rotary heat exchanger also was performed. No distinct advantages for the rotary heat exchanger in this application were revealed.
