30 minute averaged overview data from the Silsoe Refresh Cube Campaign (RCC)

How to cite this Dataset


All 30 minute averaged data taken during the Refresh Cube Campaign (RCC) at Silsoe using the 6 m^3 test structure at the site and eight other 6 m^3 straw cubes undertaken as part of the PhD work of Gough (2017) and forms the full-scale experiments of the REFRESH project.

The data-set is split into two sections: an isolated cube and the array case with three different opening set-ups being undertaken for both array and isolated.
The array was in place October 2014 to April 2015, and the cube was isolated from May 2015 to July 2015.

Details of the experimental set-ups are available in publications.

The data contained within this document are 30 minute averaged and quality controlled using code previously used for the ACTUAL project.
The data set contains wind speeds, wind directions, internal and external temperatures, surface pressures, CO_2 concentrations and ventilation rates calculated from the pressure difference methods. Internal and external measurements are included for the flow.
