Optimize HVAC Designs for Mechanical Ventilation

Test, confirm results, and optimize designs iteratively and easily in a cloud-based platform

Mechanical, or forced ventilation, is a type of HVAC system where a combination of blowers, ducts, fans, or filters etc. are used to bring and remove air from a space. This type of ventilation is very effective in controlling air quality, humidity, and temperature.

Typical Mechanical Ventilation Applications

Mechanical ventilation can be employed in a variety of HVAC projects, including residential and commercial buildings:

  • Kitchen exhaust fan units
  • Bathroom exhaust fan units
  • Hospital wards and surgery rooms
  • Office buildings
  • Server rooms
  • Clean rooms

Why Is Online Simulation with SimScale Needed for This Application?

Mechanical ventilation systems need to be evaluated in the early design process to comply with HVAC regulations, as well as meet the desired performance requirements. Additionally, these systems can benefit from being tested in various room or building configurations. However, the high cost of hardware and steep learning curves of traditional, on-premises tools leave many designers to feel that simulation is not an option.

SimScale has eliminated such traditional hurdles, thanks to the power of the cloud. With SimScale, engineers can:

  • Run multiple simulations in parallel for faster design optimization
  • Get started quickly with an easy-to-learn interface
  • Avoid manual updates, installation, or maintenance
  • Simulate other CFD, FEA, or thermal applications
