Flow Characteristics and Formation of Condensation in Automobile Tail Lamps 920817

In this study the aim of this research is to clarify the occurrence of condensation. We describe experimental and numerical study characteristics and the formation of condensation and temperature are carried out using a smoke and liquid crystal sheet, and the flow characteristics become clearer.
A sealed tail lamp model was used, and measurements were taken of the flow characteristics and temperature distribution inside of the lamp when part of the unit was heated over varying lengths of time, the results being that from these relationships the mechanism of condensation was made clear. Moreover, results received by numerical computation were reasonably consistent with experimental results.
