Tao Huang holds a M.Sc. degree from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Currently, he is a Ph.D. fellow working on the project "Optimal cooling for high productive sows in hot climate" at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. His research interests include building physics and services, indoor/outdoor thermal comfort, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), modeling of thermal system, sustainable district heating, energy demand flexibility, building energy saving, and big data analysis.   


Project description:

The number of piglets per litter per sow has increased drastically, which means that the heat production from the sow has also increased greatly. This presents a challenge for sows in hot weather, and cooling the highly productive sows is imperative. In order to cool the sow efficiently, the mechanism of the physiological reaction of sows in a hot environment and the heat release to the environment should be investigated.

The Ph.D project is conducted through a combination of the numerical simulations and experimental investigations to: (1) Develop mathematical models of heat transfer coefficients based on the conditions that the sow’s body is cooled wholly or partly; (2) To model the heat transfer from sows to the ambient and combine the heat release process with the physiological reactions based on reasonable assumptions; (3) To investigate and evaluate the chill effects by using different strategies to cool the sows.
