The study presented here concerns the impact of car inclination on the temperatures in the vehicle underhood compartment. We report here underhood thermal measurements carried out on a vehicle in wind tunnel S4 of Saint-Cyr. The underhood is instrumented by 80 surface and air thermocouples. Measurements are carried out for three thermal functioning points: the engine in operation and the front wheels positioned on the test facility with power-absorption-controlled rollers. Three car inclinations are tested.
