With positive feedback from industry leaders, the simulationHub team is ready to provide innovative solutions for HVAC design and engineering.
The mechanical system design of a new office building is tuned to maximize the quality of the occupant experience, and this presents challenges from a thermal comfort and indoor air quality perspective. Healthy and comfortable indoor environments are essential for occupant satisfaction, well-being, and productivity for people who spend most of their time indoors. In terms of indoor environmental quality, the main components are thermal comfort and indoor air quality, which are primarily controlled by HVAC systems. In this blog, we will explore how Autonomous HVAC CFD (AHC) helps to ensure thermal comfort and indoor air quality in office spaces at the design stage.
Achieving proper ventilation in indoor spaces became one of the main challenges that HVAC designers and engineers often face. Ventilation effectiveness can be increased by drawing more fresh air into the space. However, this will take a toll on the energy efficiency of the building. In certain circumstances, opting for a displacement-type ventilation system has significantly improved air quality and thermal comfort. Therefore, In this blog, we will learn the details of ventilation systems used in the HVAC industry along with a simulation performed on the case study to compare the performance of traditional and displacement systems using the Autonomous HVAC CFD (AHC) application.
