Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This is a collection of individual reports from the laboratories which participated in the intercomparison campaign to compare the results for the performance heat loss (K factor) of refrigerated trucks and refrigerated containers. Testing conditions were carefully recorded and the influence of testing parameters was studied, in particular the external air flow and the internal air circulation. The results obtained at the different laboratories differed considerably. However, the intercomparison made it possible to identify most causes of the discrepancies. With a new method and good quality control at each station, it would be possible for the laboratories to agree to within +/-5%.
