This work deals with the modelling and the animation of exhaust heat driven vapour absorption refrigeration system. The refrigerating units currently used in road transport vehicles are of Vapour Compression Refrigeration system (VCRS). This system utilizes power from the engine shaft as the input power to drive the compressor of the refrigeration system, hence the engine has to do extra work to run the compressor of the refrigerating unit, thus utilizing extra amount of fuel. This loss of power of the vehicle for refrigeration can be neglected by utilizing another refrigeration system i,e. a Vapour Absorption Refrigeration System (VARS).It is well known that an IC engine has an efficiency of about 35-40%, which means that only one-third of the energy in the fuel is converted into useful work and about 60-65% is wasted to environment. In which about 28-30% is lost by cooling water and lubrication losses, around 30-32% is lost in the form of exhaust gases and remaining by radiation, etc. In vapor Absorption  Refrigeration  System,  a  physicochemical  process  replaces  the mechanical process of the Vapour Compression Refrigeration System by using energy in the form of heat rather than mechanical work. The heat required for running the Vapour Absorption Refrigeration System can be obtained from that which is wasted into the atmosphere from an IC engine. In this project we created 3D model &Animation is done by CREO 1.0 Software.
