This webinar focuses on conducting a computational fluid dynamic simulation to understand the performance of a HVAC system of a building. The main objective of this webinar is to demonstrate how computational methods can be used to identify the locations of cooling flow inlets and the return air outlets for ensuring optimal ventilation in buildings.

Successful design involves accurately estimating the heat generated in the room and how cold air from the HVAC system can absorb this heat and relieve it from the building. Developing an experimental set up to accurately mimic a HVAC system is a challenging task. With computational tools, it is relatively easy to simulate the same flow phenomena on a computer. Once a computational setup is created to replicate a given nozzle profile, the same setup can be used to understand the system’s performance for varying inlet flow rates and heat inputs into the room. Velocity and temperature fields at regions of interest can then be extracted to identify regions of good and poor ventilation and use this information to plan the room layout accordingly.

In the webinar, we will generate a geometry in Ansys Spaceclaim and generate a structured mesh using blocking technology. The mesh will be solved in Ansys Fluent to capture relevant flow phenomena.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • Usefulness of simulation in solving problems difficult to reproduce experimentally.
  • Visualization of complex flow patterns in a HVAC system.
  • Usefulness of Ansys CFD workflow to simulate complex fluid dynamic flow fields in indoor spaces.
