Modeling an intercooler

Experimenter

Hey all. I need to model an intercooler used in cars with a turbocharger for my thesis and I could use some help, especially on how to model the "fins". Any tips on what commands to use etc? I'm using the school's Solid Edge ST8. Afterwards I would have to simulate the airflow through it with NX.

 

Thanks.

Could you make use of surfacing, with a pattern, then thickened to have a solid.....to then place in the intercooler assembly? Something like the image & attached file [ST9 sorry]

Great!.....glad to be of some help.

 

Would love to see a rendering of the finished intercooler, with the flow analysis view as well.
