Background/Objectives: Cooling system of the engine is one of main essential systems for automobiles, which maintains the engine temperature to the sustain conditions. Hence the main objective of this project work is to propose a simple piping design with less number of connecting hoses and also to reduce coolant leakage. It is also proposed to change the piping material from aluminium alloy to mild steel which reduces the overall cost of the engine cooling system. Findings: The proposed design addresses the coolant leakage problem and reduces the number of parts used in coolant pipe connections hence leading to cost reduction and simplified design. Application/Improvements: The proposed design would benefit with coolant leakage elimination by reduction in hose defects, reduced head loss, cost reduction and improved life of piping system in automobiles heavy vehicles.
