ASHRAE: Simulate Ventilation Equipment & Strategies Using Cloud-Native CFD
Learn how mixed-mode ventilation strategies can maximize natural ventilation using passive design features. Watch this demonstration that introduces engineering simulation in the cloud for simulating ventilation equipment and airflow through buildings.
Our experts share lessons learned in rapid ventilation design assessments and teach techniques that enable engineers to quickly predict wind and buoyancy-driven air movement, air quality, and fresh air rates using high-fidelity engineering simulation powered by the cloud and accessed through a web browser. This webinar’s focus will be on insights into the performance of mixed-mode ventilation strategies by modeling accurate representations of spaces, occupancy, and equipment using a 3D CAD model.

“The SimScale platform has allowed us to develop and test scenarios including ventilation flow paths and understanding the dynamics between building fabric, airtightness, window natural ventilation design, and CO2 concentrations in various utilisation scenarios. The platform has given us quality, visually digestible output to inform decision-making and to compare results against our monitored data from our extensive post-occupancy studies. Working with SimScale has allowed us to study our learning spaces in a way we never have before. It has helped inform us on which design strategies may provide the biggest impact on performance. The visual outputs have real value, not just in terms of informing our decision-making, but potentially in communicating how classrooms can work and feel to clients and stakeholders.”
“Smartlouvre decided to recruit the expertise of SimScale because SimScale recognized the unique nature of the product and the fact that its performance was complex and challenging to simulate. SimScale's expertise in the architecture, engineering, and construction sector meant they had a clear appreciation of all the challenges with simulating MicroLouvre performance criteria.”
SimScale is the world’s first cloud-native SaaS engineering simulation platform, giving engineers and designers immediate access to digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise. By providing instant access to a single fluid, thermal, and structural simulation tool built on the latest cloud computing technology, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
