TRUCK NOISE III-E: FREIGHTLINER QUIETED TRUCK COOLING SYSTEM, FIFTH REPORT

Considerations that determine the selection and the interrelation of major cooling system components are reviewed. The importance of viewing the entire cooling system when making design changes to reduce fan noise is emphasized. Freightliner's uniquely large radiator and extra large flow-through engine enclosure is described. These two design features allowed use of a large diameter, slow turning fan having negligible contribution to the truck's overall 72 dB(A) noise rating.
