Besoin en énergie des réfrigérateurs liés aux conditions d'ouverture des portes.

Energy requirements of refrigerators due to door opening conditions.

Auteurs : TERRELL W. Jr


The goal of this study was to predict the heat and mass transfer effects due to a refrigerator door being opened or a container being placed back into the refrigerator. An experimental investigation was conducted with separate testing in open cavities and simulated containers. The cavities and objects were heated to initial plate temperatures before being exposed to the ambient air. From the change in plate temperatures, the overall heat transfer coefficient was determined. The heat/mass transfer analogy was utilized to compute the mass transfer to the open cavities and objects. The sensible and latent energy loading due to door opening conditions was compared to other contributors to the refrigerator cabinet loading.
