Simulation CFD Applied: HVAC Layout

Dive deeper into the application of Autodesk Simulation CFD to optimizing HVAC layouts. Proper air movement and temperature distribution help meet design goals related to energy consumption, contaminant containment, indoor air quality, and human comfort. These design goals can be addressed by evaluating CFD simulation results.

Reducing Heat Loss & Air Resistance In HVAC Systems

Reducing lesses in an HVAC system’s air distribution system can help provide energy efficiency gains. The efficiency of any given air path is generally measured by its resistance to air flow. This is its static pressure loss or "head loss". Heat losses are also important to avoid.

Humidity Control

Humidity control systems add or remove water vapor from indoor air to stay within proper humidity ranges. Humidity control is important because It is a large factor in people's thermal comfort, can lead to mold and mildew, and dehumidifcation is a large energy user.
