Heat exchanger is a device used to transfer from one fluid to another without direct contact of the fluid. They are widely used in space heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, power plants, chemical plants, petrochemical, chemical plants, petroleum refineries and natural gas processing. The methodology of this project consists of several approaches and procedures. The procedures that had been taken are referred from literature review through many journals and articles about the automotive heat exchangers. The experiment to obtain the flow and heat transfer performance of a heat exchanger is done by using the wind tunnel to determine the heat loss and also using CFD technique in order to define the flow inside the automobile radiator. Using this method, the fluid flow in the radiator can be measured only by using a complete sketch. The sketch is inserted into the program and then the fluid flow can be measured according to the fixed color code after simulation using FLUENT software. The simulation had been successfully created in two type which is 2d and 3D. According to the calculation of heat exchanger performance, APM radiator could dissipate heat more than Wira radiator. Meanwhile, for the compactness heat exchanger, APM radiator has an addition of 9.492% of compactness performance than Wira radiator.
