Of particular interest in cold-storage warehouse operations is the influence on the space-temperature-time history of a “hot” load of goods suddenly introduced into the refrigerated zone of an insulated structure. The zone may be completely empty, or partially occupied by warehouse goods already down in temperature. Of further interest is the ultimate effect of the transient load on the performance of other components of the system, such as the connected space-cooling heat exchanger. In previous work in this realm by the author on the behavior of the over-all complex, the studies have included the various heat-exchange and machine energy-transport equipments of the system [1]. Whereas in the earlier paper the transient effect was explored via calculation methods, in the study of the problem in this paper experimental simulation methods are employed entirely, using pilot process-prototype transient-elements.
