In this thesis, the effects of a repositioning of the expansion tank to the cooling system of the bus were examined. In today's buses there are high demands on packaging in the engine compartment and the expansion tank is a large component that is normally placed high in the engine room. The aim of the project was to create a requirements definition for the repositioning of the expansion tank with respect to height, length and lateral movement relative to the engine. The thesis was carried out with calculations of both pressure drops in pipe circuits and static pressure. Different tests have been carried out in a cooling rig and test buses. The results indicate good potential to perform a repositioning of the expansion tank without impairing the engines cooling function.
