Air Conditioning and Ventilation Workshop

Optimization with CFD

About this webinar

The SimScale “Air Conditioning and Ventilation” Webinar Series will introduce you to how you can use flow simulation (CFD) to design air conditioning and ventilation systems faster, better and more cost-efficiently. If you’re a designer, architect, or engineer in the HVAC space, join this webinar series for a crisp introduction to engineering simulation based on practical examples. Each session comes with an optional step-by-step homework assignment that will help you apply what you learned directly to real-world use cases.

Meet our Instructors

Session 1 - CFD for Data Center Cooling

June 29th 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 11:00 a.m. EST

The first session introduces participants to the 3-step simulation process. We illustrate how to create a simulation for the air conditioning of a server room. Results for two different cases are compared and the best cooling design for a data center is chosen.

Session 2 - Smoke Propagation in Garage

July 11th 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 11:00 a.m. EST

The second session focuses on a ventilation application. You will learn the fundamentals of a passive quantity in fluid flow. The webinar illustrates how to simulate the propagation of smoke in a parking garage environment. A ventilation configuration is studied and results are investigated to determine a better design.

Session 3 - Heating of a Living Room

July 20th 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 11:00 a.m. EST

The third session of the SimScale Air Conditioning and Ventilation Workshop gives an introduction on how to simulate thermal comfort of a living room with SimScale. You will learn about the fundamentals of heating process modeling via natural convective heat transfer. The webinar will illustrate how to create a model simulation for heating of a room and analyze results for two different scenarios.

Session 4 - Contamination Control of a Cleanroom

July 26th 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 11:00 a.m. EST

The last session will focus on a ventilation application for a clean room. Participants will learn the fundamentals of modeling contaminants as passive quantity in fluid flow and how to simulate the spread of a contaminant in a particular cleanroom setup.
