Air Conditioning and Ventilation Webinar Series

About the webinar series

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.

 

  • Learn how to use SimScale for simulating and improving indoor environments.
  • Learn how to set up internal flow simulations.
  • Each of the webinar sessions covers a specific application and will end with one optional homework assignment.
  • There is no prior knowledge or software required to join this free workshop series.
  • All participants will get free access to SimScale with all the required simulation features.

Sessions Overview

Session One: 

DATA CENTER COOLING

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 is chosen. This webinar provides a brief introduction to post-processing.

Session Two: 

SMOKE PROPAGATION IN A GARAGE

The second session focuses on a ventilation application. Participants 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 Three: 

HEATING OF A LIVING ROOM

The third session gives an introduction on how to simulate thermal comfort of a living room with SimScale. Participants learn about the fundamentals of heating process modelling via natural convective heat transfer. The webinar illustrates how to create a model simulation for heating of a room and analyze results for two different scenarios.

Session Four: 

CONTAMINATION CONTROL DESIGN OF A CLEAN ROOM

The last session focuses on a ventilation application for a clean room. Participants learn the fundamentals of modeling contaminants as passive quantity in fluid flow and how to simulate the spread of a contaminant in a particular clean room setup. We study design variations and investigate the results to determine a better design solution.
