Numerical Simulation on the Temperature Distribution and Transferred Heat of Floor Heating
As a late-model heating technique, radiant floor heating is much more energy-efficient as compared to the conventional air-conditioning system. For the sake of inner temperature distribution of the configuration, a steady three-dimensional model was performed based on the CFD software--CFX. On the basis of temperature distribution of the radiant floor, the total quantity of heat transferred can be calculated. It is observed that most heat quantity of heating water transferred to the concrete packing layer and the floor so as to heat the room.
