Paper Abstract

A thermodynamic model for predicting the behavior of selected internal thermal sources of an M2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle is described. The modeling methodology is expressed in terms of first principle heat transfer equations along with a brief history of TACOM's experience with thermal signature modeling techniques. The dynamic operation of the internal thermal sources is presented along with limited test data and an examination of their effect on the vehicle signature.
