DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCEDURE FOR MEASURING VEHICLE DEFOGGING ABILITY

The object of the program was to develop a laboratory test procedure which could be used to evaluate the effectiveness of vehicle defrost/defog systems in removing condensation from the interior glazing surfaces of the vehicles. Five automobiles were tested according to a basic procedure partially based on the results of work done by earlier investigations. Results of these tests were used in preparing a recommended test procedure for evaluating defogging systems.
