Example: coolig circuit with parallel branches
2nd test example: ParallelCoolingTwo prescribed heat sources dissipate their heat through thermal conductors to coolant flows. The coolant flow is taken from an ambient and driven by a pump with prescribed mass flow, then splitted into two coolant flows connected to the two heat sources, and afterwards merged. Splitting of coolant flows is determined by pressure drop characteristic of the two pipes.
