In order to improve vehicle fuel economy and performance, it is desirable to employ a cooling fan system that will operate independently of engine speed and react solely to heat rejection requirements. This report describes the design, testing, and development of a temperature-controlled hydrostatic fan drive system intended for cooling engine and transmission oil in a military tracked vehicle. The testing program demonstrated satisfactory system performance and durability characteristics.
