This class is intended for users with previous experience or users who participate in this free-of-charge Introduction Training.

This 1-day-class will introduce the use of the COOL3D pre-processing tool for modeling the underhood airflow.  The focus of this class is on the airflow in the underhood compartment and heatexchanger performance calculations. The course is targeted towards engineers with responsibility for vehicle thermal management, or for those who are responsible for specifying underhood components (heat exchangers, fans, etc.).

The class will consist primarily of interactive model building exercises.  The following are the primary topics to be covered:

Building the underhood model in COOL3D: The participant will learn how to build and export a predictive quasi-3D model of the underhood compartment within the COOL3D tool, including grilles, bumpers, radiator, charge air cooler, A/C condenser, fan, fan shroud, and engine block.

Running the GT-SUITE underhood model: The participant will learn how to define boundary conditions to run a steady state underhood analysis within GT-SUITE. The use of COOL3D to evaluate different design alternatives will be discussed.

Integration with Cooling/Engine/Vehicle models: The participant will understand the capabilities of GT-SUITE to integrate underhood models created within COOL3D into larger system level simulations that may include cooling, engine, and vehicle systems.
