Climate Studies - Climatic measurements during transport

1. Description

The global division of labour is continuously growing, and the international transport of products, unfinished products, and assembly components increasing. An active transport of goods exists between the larger economic powers, namely Asia, Europe, and North America. In most cases it is conducted by use of containers transported by land (lorries, trucks, or trains), or sea. To ensure the transported goods reach their destination in good condition not only the mechanical impact of the transport, but also the climatic conditions must be accounted for.

The research group "Climate Studies - Climatic measurements during transport" was founded in order to determine the typical climatic conditions for European and overseas transport.
It is a member of the environmental simulation society "GUS", and responsible for the routine sending of high quality climatic data recorders inside of the containers along with the transported goods. The long term goal is the development of a good working statistical model for standard transport.

3. Areas of Interest

The aim of the Study is to obtain a detailed understanding of the climate inside of the transport vehicle and its affects on the cargo. Of particular interest is for example:

The expense to take part in this study is covered by each Network-Partner himself. The Network accepts all members who wish to actively take part and circulate data recorders in their own distribution networks. The measurement programs are calibrated with one another, and the results exchanged.

The planning and execution of the measuring process is based on the technical norm for measurements of transport demands DIN 30768 to DIN 30789

An example of such measurements can be seen here: Excel-Data.
