Abstract:
The effect of wind direction, relative to a multi-span naturally ventilated greenhouse, on the airflow patterns and air temperature distribution inside the house and at the openings is investigated in the present study, in a greenhouse with vertical roof openings. Experiments in a full-scale greenhouse, CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) full-scale simulations and wind tunnel tests on a small-scale model were carried out. The results showed a significant effect of the wind direction on the flow patterns both inside the house and at the roof openings. Furthermore, wind direction significantly affected the ventilation rate and the air and crop temperature distributions. A reasonable qualitative agreement was achieved between the experiments, numerical simulations and wind tunnel tests with respect to flow patterns through the openings. Quantitatively, the numerically predicted ventilation rates are in reasonable agreement with estimates of ventilation rates obtained by a model given in the literature. However, numerically predicted air velocities at the greenhouse openings differ from the measured values and possible reasons for the differences are highlighted and discussed. © 2008 IAgrE.
