Ventilation is the main mechanism for HVAC systems to achieve their goal, be it to provide thermal comfort or other special indoor conditions. Traditionally, rules of thumb and approximate hand calculations are used to dimension ventilation equipment capacities and parameters. However, this approach relies on established safety margins and late-stage physical testing and adjustments to guarantee requirements compliance. The typical result of this approach is the specification of oversized equipment and, consequently, an increase in upfront costs and energy consumption.
CFD approach is a powerful tool, enabling Engineer visualize and analyze the fluid (air or water) movement directions, throw lengths and define overheated / overcooled zones of the certain space. That is an another step to efficiency and sustainability in construction. We do the CFD modeling in Autodesk CFD and Ansys CFD software.
Our energy modeling solutions help you address important aspects of building design to minimize energy consumption and move towards a sustainable design using TRACE 700 and HAP software. We help project owners by validating building design solutions for HVAC, Public Health systems etc.
Take advantage of Computational Fluid Design (CFD) and Energy Modeling to optimize your project and gain energy savings, whether meeting a requirement of the LEED certification process or simply thinking ahead.
