The uniform velocity assumption at the inlet was found to be incorrect. The velocity
values from the CFD studies just downstream of the inlet were deviating by 100% at
It is recommended that inlet velocity be modeled based on the experimental values
measured just downstream of the inlet.
Of all the 2 equation turbulence models, SST k -⍵ has been found to give better
The heat flux from the manikin in the experiment is 76 W, but in case if only
convection is to be considered, then the value heat flux should be 38 W
From CFD studies it is observed that the maximum deviation of velocity value occurs
on the plane F at the B midline of the z plane. Hence researchers tend to compare
their velocity values specifically at this line sometimes.
