Design of air distribution systems for closed greenhouses

, : Design of air distribution systems for closed greenhouses. Acta Horticulturae ( 361): 93-104

A method is presented for designing low pressure perforated polyethylene ventilation ducts for closed greenhouses. The method is based on a well validated implicit mathematical model of duct performance, jet discharge theory, and an explicit equation for the overall discharge coefficient of a duct, based on duct parameters.
