Computational Fluid Dynamics

CFD Simulations

In order to assist with designing effective design conditions, we use in-house computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and other design tools to simulate airflows and heat transfer within buildings. CFD enables us to model how airflows and heat transfer will be affected by different design approaches. This knowledge enables us to design tailor-made concepts fully suited to every specific situation.

 Ventilation & Thermal Comfort: Maximize thermal comfort

  • Room Temperature,

  •  Room Humidity,

  •  Expected Occupancy Levels and Body Heat,

  •  Mean Age of Air Within an Interior Space,

  • Ventilation of Pollutants Such as CO within a Car Park,

  • Relationship with The External Environment Including Solar Loading and Shading, and

  •  Heat Loss through the Building Envelope such as through Doors, Windows, and Walls.

HVAC Equipment Design

 

Assess key product performance metrics such as noise levels, energy efficiency and reliability across a wide range of HVAC equipment

 

  • Air cleaning equipment

  • Air conditioners

  • Air handlers

  •  Burner design/boilers

  • Chillers

  • Diffusers

  • Heat exchangers/coils

  • Humidifiers/dehumidifiers

  • Heating equipment

  • Pumps/blowers, fans and compressors/exhausters

  • Refrigeration

 

Data Centres

Datacentre cooling is essential for its operational reliability and should always be available during all different climate conditions. Cooling generation equipment is mostly installed on the roof of the facility in close proximity of heat-generating equipment as generator exhaust systems, air handling units and more. Recent studies showed that heat dissipation from the different sources on the roof as well as solar irradiation does influence the efficiency.

Weather: Rain and Solar Radiation

Wind, rain and solar irradiation can influence the comfort experience of (semi) open or closed spaces. Furthermore, wind pressure has a direct influence on the performance of naturally ventilated volumes, such as open (multilevel) car parks. Also, you could think of the specific wind pressure on a structure or machine, e.g. wind turbines, building façade component.

With CFD simulations we can identify the resulting impact and above all provide you with the possibility to examine and compare solutions. With our advanced soft- and hardware we can model detailed products (e.g. weather louvers) up to entire cities.
