In today’s world one of the most important tasks is to handle the energy available and to minimize the heat losses. Talking about the automobile sector, engine is the prime energy source. Cooling system in any automobile system is of utmost importance as it carries the heat from the engine and dispenses it to the atmosphere. It also enhances the fuel economy and heat transfer rate which in turn helps in maximizing the engine performance.
