Abstract:

THE LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY, FROM AN ANIMAL PRODUCTION VIEWPOINT,IS INCREASINGLY USING CONFINEMENT SYSTEMS TO INCREASE PRODUCER EFFICIENCY. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR THESE CONFINEMENT SYSTEMS TO HAVE A GOOD METHOD OF CONTROLLING THE ENVIRONMENT SURROUNDING THE ANIMAL. PRESENT VENTILATIONSYSTEMS SUPPLY VENTILATION BY USING ELECTRIC POWERED FANS AND/OR DOORS THAT ARE CONTROLLED BY ELECTRIC THERMOSTATS. THE ELECTRIC SYSTEMS SUFFER FROM HIGH FIRST COST, HIGH MAIN TENANCE COSTS, AND LOW RELIABILITY. THE PROPOSED SOLUTION ISTO DESIGN A NATURAL VENTILATION SYSTEM THAT WILL HAVE A NON -ELECTRIC CONTROL DEVICE SENSITIVE TO TEMPERATURE. THIS SY SYSTEM WOULD USE VENTS PLACED WITHIN THE BUILDING SKIN. A NONELECTRIC CONTROL DEVICE IS PROSSIBLE WITH THE USE OF SHAPE MEMORY ALLOYS.
