Thermoelectrically Cooled Short Ram Intake
Abstract: The Short Ram Intake is a form of air intake for automobiles with internal combustion engines. It replaces the conventional air intake with a short metal pipe and a conical air filter inside the engine bay. A problem with Short Ram Intakes is that the air entering the intake is at a higher temperature due to the proximity of the engine, which may reduce some power. We are overcoming this issue by making use of a thermoelectric module to reduce the temperature of inlet air, thereby allowing dense air to the inlet manifold.
