Infiltration occurs when warm, moist air from the outside environment becomes trapped inside the refrigerated compartment. Glass doors on a refrigerated display case create a sealed unit keeping the majority of the warm, moist air out. This paper presents a numerical investigation into the thermal efficiency of display refrigeration doors. This is achieved by varying a number of features and evaluating their thermal performance. An introduction into the background and context of the work to be undertaken is presented. A literature review is provided, outlining the previous work completed in this field. In the final stages of this report an appropriate methodology, risk assessment, realistic timelines and resource requirements are specified.
