Speaker: Mr. Thomas Ramsay, Principal Engineer at Honda R&D Americas.
Mr. Ramsay is the Manager of the Aerothermal Performance Department and was the Aerothermal Project Leader and the CFD Technical Expert during the NSX development. Before joining Honda R&D Americas, Tom worked at Battelle Memorial Institute in the National Security Division where he performed defense, detection, and intelligence related research.

Topic: Designing a Cooling System for a Hybrid Supercar.
Designing a supercar is particularly challenging, designing the first hybrid supercar is even more so. Balancing form, function, comfort, and reliability takes the design into higher level. Early in the design phase of the Acura NSX the power train was changed from a transverse mounted V-6 to a longitudinal mounted twin turbo V-6 engine. Due to the timing of this power train change, the cooling system was designed by simulation. This presentation will address the design of the cooling system and how the cooling system design was integrated into aerodynamics and thermal toughness.
