The K-value (the overall heat transfer coefficient) is an important factor to reflect thermal performance of the covering material in a green house. The measuring process of K-value was burdensome in labors, low accuracy, complicated in dealing with data that is difficult to meet the development of modern agriculture. New testing methods need to be developed, and specially designed for greenhouse covering materials.
