Helium is on a distinguished road
Hi users,

I have to analyse the performance of a car radiator. The tool is simple: air flows through the grid and a liquid refrigerates it. The problem is that basically I have no data! I have just radiator dimensions (just length, width and height of the core) and refrigerator fluid characteristics... nothing else.
I was thinking to impose some kind of porous region but I am not so expert in doing this, furthermore this was just an idea and I am not sure that this could be a solution...

Any ideas?
