Application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the Built Environment - Webinar

Air is the primary carrier of heat, moisture and contaminants in and around built environments. Airflow patterns determine the distribution of temperature, contaminant levels and air quality, as well as the thermal comfort of occupants. Poor airflow management in an HVAC design is often detected only after commissioning and occupancy — when it’s likely too late to mitigate performance issues. 

In this webinar, you will learn how computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can help identify potential risks associated with poor airflow management early in the design phase, and optimize HVAC systems for effective, energy-efficient performance.  Additionally, several case studies will illustrate how CFD can solve your challenges across a variety of scenarios/environments, including displacement ventilation, active and passive chilled beams, airflow patterns in enclosed spaces, radiant heating and cooling, smoke propagation in atria and plume dispersion from cooling towers. An industry expert will also discuss clean rooms, patient rooms, laboratories and other applications in the built environment.
