Gauge the simulation of prevailing HVAC system to check velocity, humidity and hot pockets.
Determined the velocity, temperature and relative humidity (RH) profile inside building domain using CFD simulation.
The client wanted to gauge the simulation of prevailing HVAC system to check velocity, humidity and hot pockets inside building HVAC application. It is very important to note that HVAC application is very important for successful operation inside building. According to the local weather conditions, it is critical that the building design and requirements, air flow and temperature are maintained at human comfort level.
For that to be done it is important to be able to optimize the HVAC system for constantly changing requirements based on the capacity of building. It is also very important to make sure that the HVAC system designer gives confidence to architects, building designer and owner regarding the ventilation system to be performed as per the requirement.
Hi-Tech utilized ANSYS DesignModeler tool to create 3D CAD model of building and HVAC duct system. With the help of ANSYS Fluent the company was able to simulate and analyze human comfort inside the building. The company also determined the velocity, temperature, and relative humidity (RH) profile inside the building domain using CFD simulation.
ANSYS Fluent was also useful in getting the flow simulation done after implementation of heat fluxes and supply / return air information.
