The calculation of the temperature field of the bobsleigh track plate

Building constructions, buildings and structures

The calculationof the bobsleigh track plate’s temperature fieldis presented in thisarticle. As a coolagent authorsuse 50% ethylene glycol (there are no tracks with such type of coolagent in Russia). External conditions were accepted according toclimatic parameters of Perm in September. The influence of the distance between pipes with cooling agent and its temperature on the temperaturedistribution of the ice cover was considered.Practical recommendations about the organization of pipe system of cold supply were made. The minimum value of density of the thermal stream (for ensuring ice temperature -4 °C) which was taken away from a surface of the track was calculated.
