Abstract

The evaluation of pit ventilation systems performance by comparing air flow velocities, air currents, and evacuation times is needed to develop the information needed for proper engineering design. Therefore, a research project employing scale models of five pit ventilation systems and employing the principles of similitude and dimensional analysis and initiated with the following objectives: 1) To determine the influence of manure pit ventilation system geometry on air removal from a swine building and 2) To evaluate the effects of pit ventilation system geometry on swine building ventilation characteristics.
