A. Atilgan and A. Akyuz

Asian Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances, 2007, 2(3), 140-145.

Abstract

The degree-day values are used for fundamental design parameters in many applications, mainly related to heating and cooling, such as power generation and consumption, agriculture, animal barns, architecture, snow melt estimation, environmental energy planning and military domains. In this study, inside temperatures measured in a poultry house depending on outside temperature was calculated employing degree-day method. The number of heating and cooling days was determined for each production period. Experimental period lasted total 241 days corresponding 6 growth period. This period consist of 86 heating 11 suggested and 144 cooling days. A poultry house can be operated economically by optimizing energy consumption calculating degree-days value.
