Ventilation and Comfort: CFD and FEA Modeling

FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization

Occupant thermal comfort and indoor air quality are the primary objectives of HVAC design for buildings and vehicles. Predicting room conditions (air velocity, temperature, relative humidity, thermal radiation, contaminants) which are affected by changes due to heat loss and solar gains through the structure (wall, roof, windows, doors) provides necessary information for design improvement.

Using such simulation results coupled with information about an occupant’s activity and clothing, designers can assess a variety of comfort criteria. This is particularly valuable in testing the effectiveness of novel strategies and concepts including natural and mixed-mode ventilation. It is also important in minimizing energy consumption through the improvement of building materials and available HVAC equipment.

Thermal comfort CFD Modeling

The Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) technology provides environmental comfort and acceptable indoor air quality, which are widely used by Architects and Civil engineers.

Advanced CFD softwares capable us to handling advanced HVAC and Civil Engineering simulations starting from Indoor dynamics to external building loading to even large scale simulations. Both Architectural and Civil industries have great benefits from CFD Simulation for over thirty years, the ever-evolving software is characterized by its overwhelmingly user-friendly interfaces and high-speed processing. Some HVAC Industry simulation trends that will shape the future are:

    1. Sustainable building design – Natural Airflow and ventilation, building materials, green buildings
    2. Smart HVAC Systems – Sensors, thermostats, advanced compressor technologies, etc.
    3. Using Solar Energy – Green lighting, solar heating systems
    4. Air conditioning efficiency – Optimised A/C settings, Age of air, human comfort, etc.
    5. Indoor Dynamics – Spread of pollutants/disease, clean room, laminar flow setups, e
