MeEn 340

Ambient temperature inside an automobile subject to external conditions.


Developing equations for analysis
Developing equations for analysis:

Assumptions:

  • Absorptivity of glass is negligible

  • Absorptivity of seat fabric is 0.6

  • Assume no radiation heat transfer to the air

  • Assume non-glass heat conduction losses are negligible

  • Assume convection coefficient h=2 for at inner glass surface

  • Temperature fluctuations are small, so Pr = constant = 0.707

  • Mixed laminar, turbulent regime



The figure above is a plot generated in matlab that depicts the rise in the internal temperature of the car based on the external temperature.


Improvements to the model: the rise in the internal temperature of the car based on the external temperature.

  • Our model assumes constant solar flux into the car, therefore, the model could be improved by inputting actual solar flux data.

  • Experiments could be used to more accurately determine the effects of wind speed on convection heat transfer.

  • We assumed constant thermal properties. The model could be improved by taking into account non-constant properties.


Conclusion
Conclusion the rise in the internal temperature of the car based on the external temperature.

  • For constant solar flux the internal temperature of the car strongly depended on the external ambient temperature of the car.

  • Even in relatively low temperatures (e.g. T > 10ºC) the temperature inside the car will be significantly higher.
