During the industrial process, a huge amount of waste heat is discharged from temperatures ranging from 60 to 90℃. The operation of high temperature heat pump system which utilizes the waste heat in industries, requires stable conditions due to the need for high reliability in the manufacturing process. In this study, a plate heat exchanger (3 kW cap.) with phase change material was used to conduct different types of heat storage/release experiment. Waste heat water and brine are utilized as the working media to circulate in the heat exchanger. Heat storage and heat release were performed based on the individual flow rate of the waste heat water and the brine. As a result, it was established that the amount of heat generated by PCM contributed to the initial state in the heat release process. In other words, when the waste heat is interrupted or when it is in normal operating condition, the average heat transfer rate of 3 kW can be maintained for more than 5 minutes using PCM.

기류분석을 통한 종합병원(외래)진료부의 공기 감염 개선 연구 A Study on the Improvement of Air Infection in General Hospital(Outpatient Department) through Airflow Analysis

This study was conducted to investigate and possibly prevent airborne infection in general hospitals The CFD analysis of emergency and outpatient departments was summarized as follows; First, assessment on the first floor of the general hospital revealed that indoor exhaust air was not ejected in concurrence with the supply air, which could lead to an air shutdown. Second, CFD analysis confirmed the results of the actual survey that air congestion and inflow into other spaces may increase the probability of airborne infection. Third, the CFD analysis reflecting the improvement plan established that when the exhaust in the lobby was increased and the door was opened, there was difficulty in air control. When all the doors were closed, pressure differences occurred on the left and right sides of the lobby. Particularly, air flow may be stagnant in the stairwells and corridors, or an introduction of air in the lobby. Further installation of the front rooms, doors and exhaust outlets also enhanced the control of air flow between spaces, and flow through staircases and elevators. Therefore, it is thought that the separation of space and the proper location of exhaust could be the most effective way of controlling airflow in hospitals. In addition, it is necessary to put in place measures to reduce the possibility of airborne infection by applying each of the exhaust systems by space.

과도 상태에서 R-600a와 R-134a의 증기 응축 특성에 관한 실험적 연구 Experimental Investigation of Refrigerant Vapor Condensation During a Transient tate

Gaeun Lee ; Ji Hwan Jeong

Recent research on refrigeration systems indicate that in some instances refrigerant enters the capillary tube in a sub-cooled state, but the refrigerant remains in the two-phase state rather than in liquid phase only. This phenomenon is referred to as non-equilibrium state deviating from thermodynamic equilibrium. Previous studies confirms the non-equilibrium state of refrigerants. Majority of these experiments were done with R-600a as the working fluid. To understand the non-equilibrium phenomenon of R-600a, it is necessary to not only study its effects on the system but also its refrigerant properties. Therefore, comparison of phase change between R-600a and other refrigerants is essential. In the current study, experiments were conducted to investigate the process of phase change in refrigerants through processes such as condensation by inducing sudden pressure change and subsequently obtaining the pressure change curve that reaches the equilibrium state by condensation. Through comparison the rate of condensation of the refrigerants in stationary condition during the phase change process, the difference in characteristic between R-600a and R-134a was investigated.

Properties, such as air permeance, and moisture transmission rate are known to affect the thermal performance of enthalpy exchange in elements made of paper. Additionally, these properties are highly associated with the paper manufacturing processes including beating, calendering as well as addition of moisture absorbents. In this study, we investigated the effects of paper manufacturing processes and absorbents on air permeance and moisture transmission rate through experiments. The results showed that wet beating was more effective than free beating for improvements in the air permeance. Furthermore, lowering of the calendering speed was found to be beneficial to air permeance. Four enthalpy exchange elements were made using papers having different properties. Test results revealed that the sample made by wet beating reduced the rate of air leakage by 49% as compared to the sample made through free beating. After the amount of impregnated LiCl increased from 10% to 14%, the enthalpy efficiency of the elements increased by 39% in cooling condition and by 15% in heating condition.
