Fluid flow simulation offers a lot of potential for the AEC sector, as it allows architects and engineers to evaluate and enhance building performance early on in the design process. It's no longer impossible to reach its full potential, due to the emergence of a user-friendly cloud-based platform - simulationHub, which has been able to democratize this challenge by developing an Autonomous HVAC CFD Application. This blog will give you an overview of the results obtained by the AHC Application and describe how every result obtained is made easy to understand, which plays an important role in analyzing a given space and helps designers to optimize it.
This is a press release article about the integration of Autodesk Forge Viewer in simulationHub applications. As simulationHub software are web applications, it is very important to provide a good experience for the users to upload and view the 3D CAD model and its simulation results conveniently on the simulationHub’s web browser. So simulationHub, use Autodesk Forge viewer for visualizing the 3D models in a web browser or on mobile devices.
Occupant thermal comfort is of prime importance when we evaluate the effectiveness of any building HVAC system. Achieving a desired thermal comfort is challenging as it depends on many factors including ducting layout, supply, and returns arrangement, occupant density, occupant activity, and external environmental conditions. There is not a single perfect tool to quickly and easily estimate the comfort conditions for different design configurations and scenarios. simulationHub is working on a state-of-the-art thermal comfort app which will change the way HVAC systems are designed and evaluated. This blog gives sneak peek into what is this app and how this is going to be a great tool for HVAC designers, consulting firms and the end users.
Thermal comfort is an important aspect in representing human satisfaction, which is defined as the condition of mind which expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment by ASHRAE. It means that a person feels neither too cold nor too warm. The idea of this blog is to provide a detailed discussion of various thermal comfort indices and the role of CFD in evaluating thermal comfort in occupied spaces.
