Developing heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to maximize thermal comfort takes into account factors such as room temperature, humidity and expected occupancy, as well as heat loss through doors, windows and walls. Modeling air flow in a building is key to creating the best design of an HVAC system. Cost containment and eco-friendliness are important considerations as well.

Virtual modeling gives engineers the opportunity to test a large number of options in a short period of time to come up with the most cost-effective, energy-efficient, comfortable and appropriate system possible.

Multiphysics solutions from ANSYS lead designers to the best HVAC system solution based on input parameters, which range from room specifications to the activity of its occupants. The net result is faster approval of building designs, reduced risk of cost overruns, and on-target construction.
