    Research output: Thesisexternal PhD, WU


    <p>A description of experimental work and discussion on implementation of natural ventilation in pig houses is given. A literature review describes the state of the art, animal growth data are given. It includes characterization of ventilation openings, a technique to estimate the ventilation rate based on a carbon dioxide model. A control algorithm for natural ventilation in pig houses based on animal date and a dynamic model that can simulate the control algorithm are given.
