An Experimental Study on the Flow Structure inside a Display Cooler Using PIV Techniques
In the present study, the flow structure inside the refrigerating compartment of a scaleddown display cooler model was investigated experimentally using the particle image velocimetry (PIV) method, which is a reliable velocity field measurement technique. In addition, we also carried out flow visualization and computer simulations regarding the movements of thermo-fluid inside a display cooler. As a result, the velocity field measurement shows a large scale vortical flow structure inside the refrigerating compartment due to the entrained flow, thus penetrating a base plate through the open inlet gap.
