Abstract

"In many locations natural summer lake and pond temperatures are too great for the practical production of trout for fishing purposes.

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the refrigeration capacity required to maintain a pond of water at a temperature that provides a healthful environment for trout.

The over-all refrigeration load for this application was sub-divided into four categories; conduction, convection, evaporation and radiation. Each type was solved by analytical means using suitable boundary conditions and simplifications. It was necessary to determine one boundary condition for the conduction heat transfer by an empirical method.

The results of this Investigation Indicate a rather high refrigeration capacity is needed to maintain a constant temperature pool. A more practical value of refrigeration capacity is possible when a small dally temperature fluctuation Is acceptable"--Abstract, page 3.
