I want to use 2 radiators instead of a single radiator for cooling a maruti suzuki 800cc engine. The reason??? we are participating in SUPRASAE 2012 and our space for the radiator is limited(we cant accommodate the 300*335 mm radiators but we can accommodate two radiators within 200*300 mm). Can anyone please suggest???
Heat dissipation by the original radiator = 45.126 kW
Flow rate of coolant= 0.922 kg/s
Velocity of the coolant = 0.8 m/s
We were thinking of 2 kawasaki ninja 250R radiators each with a heat dissipation capacity of approx. 23 kW.
Also if 2 radiators are used, should they be in series or parallel???

i am too stuck in a similar situation..have u arrived at any conclusion yet?
& how did u decide the specification u the heat dissipation rate, coolant flow rate, speed..???
