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 blog will give you an overview of “The role of CFD in designing ventilation strategy for the airborne infection isolation rooms”. The app also gives information about standards designed for such isolation rooms and CFD strategy used to decide and supply and exhaust locations for isolation rooms.
This is a blog on the analysis of pedestrian wind comfort around a sea-facing high-rise area, Brickell Avenue, in Miami Florida. The Pedestrian Comfort Analysis app was used to perform the CFD simulations and generate the wind comfort plot. The results generated from the analysis show that there is wind funneling in narrow alleys and identify possible locations of pedestrian discomfort.
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.
