I am trying to design my own ventilation ducting and simulate the results using SimScale. My goal is to install a system which would cost at most 2000€ so I will get standard ducts and fitings from airguru.ro and perhaps a Vents VUE 250 ERV. So far I feel I am making progress but I need some feedback from you guys to see if I’m on the right track.
Basically, here it’s a duct connected to an ERV capable of 250 m^3/h (150 cfm) and which sends air to 4 outputs.
I estimate that air requirements on each output are 50 m^3/h (30 cfm) but I have no ideea how to actually verify if those requirements are met.
The link to my project is this:
and the OnShape model can be accessed here.
I have two slightly different simulations. In a second version I decreased the size of two of the ducts. Is that any better/worse or it doesn’t matter?
Can you please advice how to interpret the results? Does my design make any sense?
Do you have any suggestions for optimizing this?
