    Charge air cooler tanks may have a big impact on the efficiency of the heat exchangers behind. A simple approach to model those effects in KULI is the use of area resistances to block the air flow in the area where the tanks of the charge air cooler are located.

    The area resistances correspond to the size of the real -life tanks.To consider the high air resistance typically caused by the tanks a high pressure loss coefficient has to be set. To model the local impact regarding the heat exchanger surfaces the area resistances simply can be integrated to the cooling package using the KULI block function.

    Usable from release: KULI 8.0-1.04
    Necessary modules: KULI base
