Paper Title:
Numerical Investigation on Thermal Environment inside the Passenger Compartment of a Highway Sleeper Coach
  Abstract

In order to verify thermal comfort of a 12-meter-long highway sleeper coach equipped with a four-ducted air-conditioning system, the thermal environment inside the passenger compartment was numerical investigated with RNG k-ε turbulence model. Also, discrete ordinates radiation model was applied to consider the effect of solar irradiation. The characteristic distribution of the airflow organization and temperature field were obtained and compared with experiment results. Results show that the air flow and temperature distribution inside the passenger compartment are not uniform and greatly influenced by solar radiation and air inlet parameters.
