Description

A rural house integrated with an elevated floor heating system based on the thermal utilization of a burning cave has been established to provide a more comfortable and clear indoor environment. Inside the elevated floor heating system, air is taken as the heat transfer medium and tin layer is designed as metal fin in the middle layer of the elevated floor to enhance heat transfer. In this study, heat transfer process and thermal performance of the inner metal fin were analyzed by theoretical calculations and field measurements. The results show that while the heat flux of the burning cave is decreased from 460 W/m2 to 200 W/m2, the convection heat intensity of the hot air inside the elevated floor under each room is from 2W/m2 to 9W/m2. Finally, it confirms that the effective length of the metal layer should be less than 0.4m. All the above results show that appropriate design parameters can lead to an optimum heat transfer process.
