The critical factor characterizing a cooling system optimization process is the air circuit, for the theoretical prediction of its behavior is up to now not yet satisfactory. In this situation it is extremely useful to have information gained by empirical testing. This paper describes the simulation techniques and the experimental methods employed by Fiat Research Center. They can be applied both during the development stage (mock-ups) and on definite vehicles.
