The Effect of New Designed Micro Animal Housing on the Air Speed Distribution in the Barn for Providing of Climatic Comfort to the Cattles

Nuh Ugurlu and Selda Uzal    

Abstract: In the research, a new animal housing was designed and built in Konya, Turkey. In the new design for the open loose system of beef and of milk cattle, the structural stress was decreased for the animals by planning new areas, in which they can use during different seasons. The air speed distributions inside the shelter were analyzed in the building for obtaining climatic comfort. According to the research results, when the wind came perpendicularly, diagonally and with 90° angle to the barn, the following inside air speeds of 0.07, 0.53 and 0.39 m sec-1 were obtained for outside speeds of 2.81, 4.18 and 2.41 m sec-1, respectively. The wind speed was decreased between 85-97% in new designed housing system.
