CFD Analysis

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis is used by environmental designers to calculate the temperature, velocity and pressure of the design through a 3-D simulation platform.

CFD is used to answer design questions such as:

• What sort of temperature distribution could be expected in an atrium under clear sky summer conditions?

• Will the arrangement of supply diffusers provide adequate air flow?

• Is the location of the radiators going to provide comfortable living conditions?

• Will natural ventilation provide occupants with adequate comfort in the summer?

• What effect will the shape of the building have on local wind velocity?

• Are there any areas of immobile air pockets inside the building?

• Which layout design in a hot/cold isle server centre gives the most effective equipment cooling?
