  • Publication number: 20150101550
    Abstract: An air duct for a vehicle may include a front duct formed forward to take in an exterior air in front of the vehicle, a rear duct formed relatively rearward from the front duct such that the exterior air flowing via the front duct passes therein, and a duct outlet flowing out the exterior air flowed via the rear duct, wherein the air duct may be disposed at both sides of an exterior air intake port taking in the exterior air in front of the vehicle into an engine compartment, and wherein both front ducts may be formed to be bent such that extension lines thereof form a streamlined shape in front of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 8893835
    Abstract: An engine room layout using a wind flux concentration guiding device, may include an intake system having an air intake, a turbocharger, and an intercooler, and may be disposed in an engine room, a cooling module having a condenser and a radiator, a main duct that introduces wind passing through a front end part forming the front of the engine room and discharges the wind to the air intake and the intercooler, a sub-duct that introduces the wind passing through the front end part from different positions and discharges the wind to the intercooler, and a diverging duct that may be connected to a wind channel of the main duct to diverge some of the wind introduced into the main duct before the wind passes out of the main duct, and send the wind to the air intake.
