INSIDE project will allow to join forces of several teams among most productive in research in engineering sciences in Romania, establishing a knowledge pole dedicated to support one of the major industrial player in our country which is Renault Technologie Roumanie. This way teams Technical University of Civil Engineering, the National Institute for Aerospace Research "Elie Carafoli", the University of Pitesti and the Technical University of Cluj Napoca will connect some of the most advanced facilities and measuring techniques in Europe in the fields of air distribution, evaluation of Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ), applied fluid mechanics, automation and control, automotive systems design. A series of objectives that would integrate solutions for high indoor environmental quality in vehicles are proposed:
(1) The first project end-objective will be: Developing an experimental real scale facility for studying IEQ and ventilation strategies in the vehicles. The project end-product: a unique national experimental facility dedicated to thermal comfort assessment in vehicles. The expected results are new possibilities of local research development oriented towards the car models from the national Dacia brand.
(2) The second objective is: Reconsidering thermal comfort theory applied to vehicles in order to deepen the knowledge on thermal comfort and its numerical methods of prediction and on the other hand to analyze the real role played by transient environment parameters. The project end-product: new models and evaluation indexes for thermal comfort assessment in vehicles. The expected results are several scientific articles, indexed in ISI Web of Knowledge data base which will contribute to the national prestige of our academic community, and the starting point of developing new standards in the field.
(3) The third objective will be the Evaluation of the impact of multi-zone ventilation and air conditioning strategies on thermal comfort and IEQ in general, on ergonomics and fuel consumption. Several strategies of ventilation and air conditioning – i.e. one zone, multi-zone, of air distribution will be tested along with an optimized fuzzy logic approach for a semi-automatic climate control using variable air flow. Best scenarios for improved comfort and reduced consumption will be assessed. Project end-products: a data base of numerical and experimental results which will allow extrapolating best case scenarios and optimal configurations. Expected results: a Romanian concept car with multi-zone air distribution and semi-automate climate control.
(4) The fourth objective will focus on implementing innovative air diffusion grilles in a Romanian prototype vehicle. The idea behind this objective is to introduce air diffusers with a special geometry allowing improving mixing between the hot or the cold conditioned air introduced in the cockpit and the ambient. The reduced air mass fluxes being introduced in the occupied zone, should uniformly distribute fresh air and conditioning cooling or heating loads in order to achieve thermal comfort and acceptable air quality. The project end-products will be air diffusers prototypes for vehicles. The expected results are: the integration of these prototypes in a Romanian concept car, along with national and international patents, as well as several scientific articles.
(5) The final objective will be a Good Practice Guide for ventilation strategies vehicles and their associated assessment methods. Based on experimental and numerical data from objectives 3 and 4 a coherent series of strategies for designing ventilation systems for vehicles will be proposed. Project end-products: Good Practice Guide for ventilation strategies and thermal comfort assessment in vehicles. The expected results are: the starting point for a new (at least national) standard.
