Application By Heejin Park, Ph.D., P.Eng.

Eden Prairie, Minnesota

Computer simulation played a key role in the optimization of a displacement ventilation system in a school auditorium by helping to reconfigure the locations of the diffusers and the exhausts in order to eliminate unnecessary air flow. Displacement ventilation systems, which locate the air supply on the floor instead of the ceiling, are gaining popularity in North America because they are more efficient and require less energy to maintain a given level of comfort. However, displacement ventilation systems are generally more difficult to design due to several inherent issues like the need to avoid temperature gradients and drafts with the air supply located near the people.

New Software: Optimal Solutions Releases New Version of Sculptor
Posted Tue October 04, 2005 @08:53AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Sculptor™ is one of a new breed of "mesh-changing packages" that functions not by making shape deformations on the geometry of the object under test, but instead, by directly deforming the volume mesh along with the object shape.

With the completion and recent release of Sculptor 1.7.2, client companies will again gain from the increased functionality and robustness of the technology. Project duration time will be shortened, because designers will now have the ability to more quickly quantify their mesh quality, as well as define the bounds of the geometry of their parts' constraint surfaces.
