Development and base line testing of local pressure drop in rectangular ducts with discrete roughness elements
"Currently, both on-highway and off-highway vehicle manufacturers are attempting to decrease levels of pollution while increasing power and efficiency. This problem has occurred due to more constricting emissions regulations around the globe. This is especially true for diesel engines where many of the solutions require increased cooling, in turn requiring more efficient powertrain cooling systems. Both the air and coolant side of the powertrain cooling systems are now being re-examined. In this thesis, an experimental apparatus was designed to test the pressure differentials of flat aluminum enhanced tubes of an off-highway vehicle powertrain cooling system"--Abstract, leaf iii.
