Paper #   141912797   Experimental Validation of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Model of Perforated Polyethylene Tube Ventilation Systems in Dairy Operations
Citation:  Paper number  141912797,  2014 Montreal, Quebec Canada July 13 – July 16, 2014. (doi: 10.13031/aim.20141912797) @2014
Authors:   Mario R Mondaca, Christopher Y Choi
Keywords:   Abstract. Dairy operations commonly use fans to cool and exchange air in cow barns. However, most of these systems consume high amounts of energy and merely recirculate the existing contaminated air. Conversely, in a polyethylene tube ventilation system, the fan is placed on the outside of the barn to continually draw fresh air, and this type of system also employs targeted air jets to cool each cow. This ventilation system can be an efficient way to cool the individual animals, rather than the barn, while still maintaining an adequate air exchange rate. This study validates a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of a poly-tube system with experimental data obtained at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The results show that the model was capable of replicating experimental results. The results thus demonstrate that CFD is a viable tool for designing this type of system and for evaluating their potential to remove heat from dairy cows.CFD, Heat Stress, Ventilation, Modeling, Dairy, Cows.
