About This Item


Full Description

Relevant and accurate data pertaining to the effects of surface characteristics on heat transfer on radiant panels will assist system designers in predicting the actual panel output required for thermal comfort as well as energy performance. This project involves the development of a reliable method appropriate for use in setting a standard while measuring and comparing the actual radiant heat output of panels with various surface characteristics. The objective of this project is to experimentally determine the impact of surface characteristics on radiant panel output.
