Overall Heat transfer coefficient for a radiator

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all.
I need to design a radiator for 43kw heat dissipation. I have used the LMTD method for finding out the contact surface area of the radiator. But I have a small problem. I cannot find the area unless i know the overall heat transfer coefficient. Can somebody please give an estimate of the coefficient for a crossflow radiator? Or can somebody point me to a radiator design example? Thanks.
