Extreme Summer Case Study

In these two highly specialized test sour goal was to capture as many temperature readings as possible throughout the entire cargo container. Monitors were placed on the walls several feet from the container’s ceiling, and suspended from rope dan-gling just above the insulating cargo blanket to measure the ambient temperature, above the cargo insulating blanket. Additional monitors were placed below the cargo blanket, insulated from the rest of the trailer. As depicted, the monitors were broke into 3 groups: left row, center row, and right row. Each row’s readings, along with all interior ambient readings, were averaged to form a line graph showing the ambient versus insulated temperatures throughout the trip.
