Testing HVAC solutions virtually, before any construction starts, saves both money and time.
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD), allows engineers to visualize flow velocity, density, thermal impact and chemical concentrations for any region where the flow occurs, enabling engineers to analyze the problem areas and suggest the best solutions.
For the engineers designing HVAC systems, CFD simulations are useful for meeting sustainability and energy-efficiency targets while keeping the solutions at a acceptable cost.
The most significant change is the accuracy of the simulation results even when analyzing a sophisticated design. Testing HVAC solutions virtually, before any construction starts, saves both money and time, leaving much more freedom to experiment to find the optimal solution.
With flow simulations, engineers can:
Here are some of the examples of where simulations for HVAC can be the most useful:
