Program: Application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Course Description:

Application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for Built Environment (AIA and GBCI approved)

Air is the primary carrier of heat, moisture, and contaminants in and around built environments. Airflow patterns determine the distribution of temperature, contaminant level, and importantly air quality and thermal comfort of occupants. The HVAC design risk due to poor airflow management is often realized after commissioning and occupancy. Sometimes it is too late to mitigate the issues related to poor airflow management. This presentation will show how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can help in identifying such risks at early stages in the design and help optimize the HVAC designs for effective and energy efficient performance. After providing a brief introduction to CFD, this presentation with the help of several case studies will show applications of CFD for a wide variety of scenarios involving displacement ventilation, active and passive chilled beams, airflow patterns in enclosed spaces, radiant heating and cooling, smoke propagation in atria, clean rooms, data centers, patient rooms, laboratories, plume dispersion from cooling towers, and several other similar applications to built environment.
