Full Description

A two-dimensional transient model of air movement aswell as heat and mass transfer in an ice rink was developed andtested by comparing its predictions with measured values in aMontreal municipal ice rink. The model was then used topredict the daily heat flux profiles into the ice by convection,radiation, condensation, and resurfacing operations for arepresentative configuration and for average, steady, and periodicmeteorological conditions. The heat loads from theground and dissipation in the floor pipes were also calculated.The effects of climate and some design parameters or operatingconditions (ceiling emissivity, below-floor insulationthickness, and average brine temperature) on the daily loadswere evaluated and analyzed.
