Using Computational Fluid Dynamics to Optimize HVAC Design

Posted by Price Industries on June 16, 2020 at 10:01 AM

Leverage the power of simulation on your next building design

High demands are placed on modern HVAC systems to create optimal indoor environments while minimizing energy usage. Consequently, usage of computer-based analysis tools like computational fluid dynamics (CFD) that aid in the design of these systems is becoming more prevalent. With the recent addendum to ASHRAE 62.1 we expect the demand for CFD analyses to increase even further. The change states that a CFD analysis can be used to estimate the ventilation effectiveness value used to determine the outdoor air requirement instead of tables provided in the standard.
