EFFECT OF THE THIN STAINLESS SHEETS USED AS LINING FOR COACH ROOFS ON HEATING BY RADIATION

EINFLUESSE EINER DACHBEBLECHUNG AUS EDELSTAHL ROSTFREI AN REISEZUGWAGEN AUF DIE WAERMEEINSTRAHLUNG

The stainless-steel external sheathing used for passenger cars is fully satisfactory. A study has shown that roofs of thin steel sheets produces even better results: in very warm weather, the temperature of bright steel sheets rises only 8 degrees C, but about 26 degrees C in the case of painted metal sheets. As a result, the installed air-conditioning power can be reduced by 15 percent. In winter, losses of heat by radiation are also less marked when bright steel sheets are used.
