HVAC Exhaust Fan Modeling Improves Power Plant Performance
Posted Tuesday June 12 at 9:20am
An Airflow Sciences Corporation article describes the application of simulation to HVAC Exhaust Fan Modeling.
The effectiveness of a ventilation system can be influenced by the uniformity of flow through the entire HVAC system, starting with the supply fan, through the ductwork to building loads, and to the exhaust fan. Although the result is typically a decrease in HVAC performance or vibration concerns, the worst case scenario is equipment failure. CFD modeling during the design phase can optimize performance.

Hybrid RANS-LES Methods for Industrial CFD, (VIII)
Posted Monday May 21 at 8:37am
ERCOFTAC will host Hybrid RANS-LES Methods for Industrial CFD, (VIII) Overview, Guidance and Examples on 20-21 November 2018 at NUMECA International in Brussels, Belgium.
Turbulence is one of the last remaining challenges in the simulation of fluid flows. Although RANS (Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes) turbulence models are still very widely used, these approaches are being slowly supplanted by Large Eddy Simulation (LES). However, LES is prohibitively expensive for the industrial simulation of wall-bounded flows, especially at high Reynolds number.
