Real Temperature Distribution on the Surface of Underfloor Heating
Full Paper(PDF, 351KB)
The article presents the possibilities of developing the heat transfer area of supply pipes in underfloor heating. It examines the influence of ribs shape and the distance between them on the distribution of temperatures on the surface of heating plates depending on the variable temperature of the heating factor. Numerical analyses were conducted for the predetermined steady states and based on the finite element method.
Keywords:Heat Transfer; Rib; Underfloor Heating; Temperature Gradient
