Thermal Management in Buildings: HVAC/Climate Control Analysis
FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization
Thermal management is vital to the design of buildings, as building designers need to consider heat and moisture variations in building components. We use the Heat Transfer to analyze thermal management in wooden frames, window frames, porous building materials, and other building components. Enteknograte’s engineering team analyze water condensation and evaporation on building surfaces, heat and moisture storage, latent heat effects, as well as diffusion and convective transport of moisture and eddy-based turbulent mixing for heat and moisture transport in air with using advanced CFD and FEA tools such as MSC Cradle, Siemens Star-ccm+, Ansys Fluent, Abaqus and Nastran.
HVAC/Climate Control Analysis
Climate control systems are often subjected to different thermal loads and require a conjugate heat transfer analysis. Most of systems have both environmental loads and electric dissipation loads and the purpose of many climate control systems is human thermal comfort. With using advanced Thermal analysis tools we can test the efficacy of passive thermal designs and energy-saving devices, without sacrificing human comfort. Enteknograte provides both system-level and building-level analysis. From study of a window design to a full system analysis of HVAC loading requirements, our experience and efficiency are leveraged to a cost-effective solution.
Climate Control System Design
Enteknograte engineers place virtual buildings, vehicles, and human models into simulated natural environments with specific global positions, real weather data, and, in some cases, virtual human thermal models. Simulating the total energy balance of the building or vehicle over time, including the performance of the climate control system, we predict the temperatures of the exterior and interior spaces.
The temperatures of the human body segments and body core are simulated in response to the building or vehicle environment, including solar transmission through windows onto the human model. The results of such analyses allow improvements to thermal performance of engineered systems with lower energy consumption by HVAC systems.
With using CFD based design optimization solutions serve as an important link for our clients to realize their product promise right from concept to realization. Our team of CFD engineers in conjunction with experienced FEA Engineers for FSI and complicated industrial multiphysics problem is delivering solutions to major engineering verticals globally.
