Influence of Shelves on Air Temperature and Velocity in a Supermarket
MetadataShow full item record
In the sales area of a supermarket, the airflow pattern is different from the general marketplace due to its particularity in shelf layout and system zones. When something generates heat, the influence on velocity fields and temperature fields will be great. According to the analysis of measurement results of a supermarket in Harbin, factors such as relative position of supply and return air inlets, height of shelves and objects with heat generating capabilities influence the velocity fields and temperature fields. As a result of this analysis, we give some suggestions for design of air conditioning systems that consider the position of fixed supply and return air inlets, goods' shelf layout and the area system design with heat-generating objects.
