Abstract

Many variations of building geometries and natural ventilation designs are currently being produced and marketed for cold confinement beef structures. Since these buildings are widely used and ventilation problems are evident, research was conducted with the following objectives: 1. Determine the effect of model configuration, wild direction and ventilation panel opening on ventilation characteristics (ridge vent flow and temperature difference) in three model, open-front beef buildings. 2. Develop prediction equations for the relationships between ventilation characteristics and climatic conditions. 3 Compare ventilation system performance in three, open-front model buildings.
