Ventilation Characteristics of Modeled Compact Car Part 1 Airflow Velocity Measurement with PIV 2008-01-0732

In the present study, a model experiment is performed in order to clarify the ventilation characteristics of car cabin. This study also provides high precision data for benchmark test. As a first step, the ventilation mode is tested, which is one of the representative air-distribution modes. Part 1 describes the properties of the flow field in the cabin obtained by the experiment. Part 2 describes the ventilation efficiencies such as the age of air by using trace gas method. The properties of flow field are measured using particle image velocimetry (PIV). The mean velocity profiles, the standard deviation distribution, and the turbulence intensity distribution are discussed. The brief comparison between experiments and predictions of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is also presented. In the comparison between experiment and CFD, the results showed similar flow field.
