Infiltration occurs when warm, moist air from the outside environment becomes
trapped inside the refrigerated compartment. Glass doors on a refrigerated
display case create a sealed unit keeping the majority of the warm, moist air
This paper presents a numerical investigation into the thermal efficiency of
display refrigeration doors.
This is achieved by varying a number of features and evaluating their thermal
performance. An introduction into the background and context of the work to be
undertaken is presented. A literature review is provided, outlining the previous
work completed in this field. In the final stages of this report an appropriate
methodology, risk assessment, realistic timelines and resource requirements
are specified.
