We investigate the effects of an opposing buoyancy force on the performance of an air curtain in the doorway which separates a warm indoor environment from the cold exterior. Such an opposing buoyancy force arises for example if a downwards blowing air curtain is heated. We conducted small-scale experiments using water, salt and sugar solutions as the working fluids. The effectiveness curve of a downwards blowing air curtain as a function of the deflection modulus was measured for situations in… CONTINUE READING
