Abstract
Accurate thermal modeling requires verification and validation of the model and software being used. For basic evaluation of thermal prediction models and software tools, a generic model - CUBI was build. The model was designed to have simple geometry yet, consisted of similar characteristics as of a ground vehicle. The model was equipped with thermocouples for measuring its temperature variations and was placed in a typical desert environment for field testing. The experimental setup also included a meteorological station. The data collected was used for the thermal behavior analysis of the generic model and for comparison with the thermal calculations predictions. Comparison of the results shows sufficient compliance but yet reviles some issues in the modeling that should be addressed.
