ABSTRACT
The present work concerns prediction of the amount of heat accumulation within the interior of a framed glass cabin and proposes some remedial measures to reduce temperature in the cabin. Various configurations such as double layer glass box filled with static air, static argon gas and flowing argon gas within the space between the two glass-layers are considered to conduct the experiments. Multi-physics bond graph models for these configurations are developed considering thermo-fluidic aspects. The experimental results are compared with the simulations using bond graph models. Though, direct application to a vehicle is not made, without loss of generality, the modelling and experimental procedure can be extended to analyze the heat accumulation inside a vehicle cabin when the vehicle is parked under direct sunlight.
