Default cooling system

Hi; My physical model is a hollow vertical column with rectangular cross section. At the base there are two intake fans and at the top set of oil cooler and water cooler are fitted horizontally. The air is forced by fans onto the radiators and thus cooling them. Air flow rate is known. Can some one help me in:-

a.) Defining bc at air-radiator interface and at outlet.

b.) Explain whether radiator is to be modelled physically or to be treated as porous jump.

c.) If radiator modelled separately,two volumes to be merged or united.

Thanks in advance,

spp
