Airflow Analysis on HVAC Plant
Gary Knox, Engineering Manager

CFD analysis can simulate parameters such as air temperature, air velocity and air pressure profiles around mechanical plant, in particular air-cooled condensers. The resulting analyses can identify potential problems in equipment capacity and performance caused by exceeding recommended levels in any of these parameters. Find out how this analysis is performed, scope of analysis, recommended equipment layouts and example of output results. This session will be of particular interest to those involved in design of mechanical services projects, which may include equipment enclosures, plant areas where there is a variety of air-discharging equipment and multi-storey developments such as floor-on-floor plant rooms or rooftop plant.
