The main objective of this paper is to analyze the best insulation material and optimum insulation thickness and airflow pattern using results obtained from computational fluid dynamics module FLUENT. This deals with the computational fluid dynamics analysis of flow in Reefer truck. This involves with the three dimensional analysis of flow through a Reefer truck having inlet and outlet. The software used for this purpose is CATIA v5 and ANSYS 13.0. The three dimensional model of the Reefer truck are made by CATIA v5 and analysis are to be carried out by module FLUENT. The models are first generated using the data and then meshed after that various velocity and pressure contours are to be drawn and graphed in this paper to analyze the flow. Various graphs indicating the variation of velocity, pressure and temperature of the Reefer Truck are given. In experimental work, take pull up and pull down readings of reefer truck. This paper strongly focused on optimum insulation thickness and lowest cost insulation material which give best results and to reduce weight of reefer truck.
