Vehicle Thermal Management Systems Conference (2013: West Midlands, UK)

Woodhead Publishing


337 pages



The 26 papers from VTMS 11 are presented in sections on engines, heat exchangers, waste heat and energy recovery, simulation, underhood and vehicle simulation, heat and alternating current in alternative power trains, and papers for publication only. Among the topics are reducing thermal losses from automotive lubricant circuits during cold start by applying polymer insulation, using numerical simulation to investigate refrigerant maldistribution in the evaporator of an automotive air conditioning system and to improve the design of the system, evaluating thermal systems in hybrid electric vehicles by simulation, transient fan modeling and effects of blade deformation in a truck cooling fan installation, and using palliative technologies to minimize heating-ventilating-air conditioning loads and their impact on the range of electric vehicles. There is no subject index.
