Effects of Radiation on Thermal Comfort for Indoor Spaces

About this Free Webinar

Radiation and heat transfer from radiation play an important role in HVAC systems from office to apartment buildings but is often ignored as a negligible factor. Every element in an HVAC system (i.e. heating panels) has the potential to be radiative surfaces as they are capable of reflecting and absorbing radiation. Therefore, it is very important to simulate the airflow and temperature distribution when designing indoor spaces, and this cannot be done without including the effect of radiation.

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to simulate flow in office spaces, while investigating the effects of radiation. We will show how this type of heat transfer affects the inhabiting humans, furniture, windows, and more, evaluate thermal comfort parameters such as PMV (predicted mean vote index) and PPD (predicted percentage dissatisfied index) and determine the overall the contribution of radiation in the indoor space.

There is no prior knowledge or software required to join this webinar. All participants can get free access to SimScale with all the required simulation features by creating a Community account on the website. If you are not able to attend the live session, we would still encourage you to register in order to receive the recording.
