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
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
Want to try SimScale to optimize your own mechanical ventilation design?
In this project, a cleanroom’s HVAC system is simulated to evaluate the airflow, and help track the particles present in the air as well as the temperature variation across the room. Learn how to run this simulation yourself by copying the project!
