Stack Effect and Ventilation System Design

About this Free Webinar

Stack effect (or chimney effect) describes the specific behavior of airflow that occurs due to a difference in indoor-to-outdoor temperature and air density. This phenomenon is best visualized through containers that facilitate this movement, such as chimneys or flue-gas stacks. Understanding stack effect is extremely important for building design, as it creates natural ventilation and air infiltration. As the name might suggest, chimney effect can also aid fireplace plumes and direct smoke propagation, therefore it is crucial to evaluate your design’s ventilation systems in the early planning stage.

In this webinar, you will learn how the SimScale cloud-based simulation platform enables HVAC engineers to leverage the potential of CFD for their own projects by using a standard web browser (no installation or special hardware required).

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.

About SimScale

With offices in Boston and Munich, SimScale is the world’s first production-ready SaaS application for engineering simulation. By providing instant access to computational fluid dynamics and finite element analysis, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application only available to experts in large companies to a user-friendly web application accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
