In validation/optimization of HVAC design
CFD data can be utilized to validate various design
parameters such as the location and number of diffusers
and exhausts, and temperature and flow rate (CFM)
of supplied air to meet design criteria.
of malfunctioning HVAC systems:
The system with suggested modifications can be simulated
computationally without actual physical modifications
to the existing systems. The information from CFD
reveals what modification satisfies the design criteria.
In comparisons between
Under some circumstances, there may be several different
options for designing HVAC systems for a space (for
example, mixing ventilation or displacement ventilation).
Computer simulation data can provide crucial information
to find the best possible system.
In an engineering investigation:
CFD analysis of temperature, velocity and chemical
concentration distributions can help engineers understand
the problem correctly and provide ideas for best
