How to Ensure Thermal Comfort and Energy Efficiency with CFD

About this Free Webinar

Regions with a hot climate such as the Middle East are known for maintaining heavily air-conditioned spaces in an effort to achieve proper indoor cooling. Ensuring thermal comfort in commercial, residential or office buildings is no easy task, as it requires mediating adequate indoor temperatures with air conditioning systems against an overwhelmingly hot outdoor climate. Due to this, often the occupants feel either too cold or too warm indoors. Moreover, AC units running at excessive levels year-round imply a high amount of energy consumed, which increases overhead costs for the buildings as well as has damaging effects on the environment.

To tackle both challenges—ensuring thermal comfort and increasing energy efficiency—architects and engineers are using simulation technology to virtually test their designs and optimize them to meet customer demands and industry standards.

Follow along with the webinar slides here. 

In this exclusive webinar, SimScale and Qatar Green Building Council will show participants how to:

  • Assess and ensure thermal comfort and energy efficiency within a standard web browser
  • Visualize numerical simulation results in order to assess requirements for LEED or BREEAM certification
  • Use the power of cloud computing to virtually test multiple design iterations and improve performance

No prior knowledge or software is required to join this webinar. If you are unable to attend the live session, we would still encourage you to register in order to receive the recording.

February 18, 2020 02:30 p.m. GMT+3 (Qatar) / 12:30 p.m. CET (Germany)

In this webinar, we will explore how thermal comfort and energy efficiency in building design can be assessed and what role numerical simulation plays in such studies. A CAD model of a building located in the Middle East will be used as an example, with the goal of meeting the standards for both areas.
