Application: CFD Used to Develop Impulse Ventilation for Car Parks
Posted Thu March 29, 2007 @08:51AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Ventilation of covered car parks is essential for removing harmful vehicle exhaust fumes and providing assistance to fire fighters by clearing smoke in the event of a fire. Ventilation using impulse fans has been in use in Europe for more than 10 years and is becoming increasingly popular in the UK.

CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) is now being increasingly used in the design of car parks for modelling the carbon monoxide distribution and concentration as well as the thermal gradients and smoke densities in the event of a fire.
