Experimental research on the influence of the air humidity conditions in an air conditioning system
The factors that have influence on the energy consumption of a small air conditioning system that are worth mentioning are the efficiencies of the compressor, evaporator and condenser, the form that the refrigerant flow ...
An evaporative and desiccant cooling system for air conditioning in humid climates
Evaporative cooling operates using water and air as working fluids. It consists in water evaporation, through the passage of an airflow, thus decreasing the air temperature. This system has a great potential to provide ...
Influence of the environment on behavior patterns of laying hens kept in cages
The aim of this paper is to verify the correlation between environmental indicators and behaviors expressed by laying hens kept in cages. The birds react to a severe environment through their behaviors, end the behaviors ...
Palladium-Loaded Hierarchical Flower-like Tin Dioxide Structure as Chemosensor Exhibiting High Ethanol Response in Humid Conditions
The impact of humidity is a crucial factor in the sensing performance of a chemiresistive gas sensor. Therefore, strategies for developing sensors with a small humidity dependence are required. Herein, the volatile organic ...
Comparison of environmental indicators of two aviaries for laying Hens
The aim of this paper is to compare the environmental indicators of two housing systems for laying hens. The roof of aviary I was built with cement-asbestos tile, ridge vent, and long eaves. The roof of aviary 2 was built ...
