Study of the Applications of the Radiant Cooling Panel in Museum Showcases
MetadataShow full item record
The radiant cooling panel was proposed to control the temperature in the showcases to supply a steadier environment for cultural relic preservation. The new showcase and the convectional one's temperature and flow field were compared by numerical simulation. More attention was focused on the two different conditions: with and without air-conditioning. It is found that the new showcase's isothermals distribute more regularly than the convectional one, and its zone for the cultural relic's preservation is also larger than the convectional one. It is also found that the velocity magnitude of the new showcase is much smaller than the convectional one, which is good for the cultural relics.
