Design of a Cooling Bath

by Alex Leonard


Submitted : Fall 2010

Initially, the student is given a water bath that is the same temperature as the surrounding air. The bath has a cooling coil going through it that contains a refrigerant that is meant to cool the water. The goal of the project was to find the area of that coil and the temperature of the refrigerant that would allow the cooling system to meet the two following criteria:(1) The steady state temperature needs to be 0 degrees C. (2) The temperature needs to drop from 25C to 15C, 1800 seconds after the system is turned on.
