HVAC engineers validate and optimize designs using CFD simulation. Achieve operational goals by controlling microclimates, thermal comfort, draft rating, and air quality compliance. More companies are adopting airflow studies in-house to mitigate risk and win new business.
Autodesk CFD gives engineers the ability to see the invisible properties of air moving about a building. Applying this capability to HVAC validation delivers amazing results. With the ability to visualize and analyze microclimates within spaces you can optimize designs with confidence. Using CFD results, you can overcome common building HVAC design challenges.
Assess and improve indoor air quality to ensure air within all occupied areas of a building is replaced with the minimum air changes per hour.
Optimize pedestrian comfort in building designs through simulation of indoor and outdoor temperature gradients.
Examine pollution re-entrainment and particulate tracking at indoor to outdoor interfaces such as shipping docks, garages, and building-top helicopter landing pads.
Determine how wind can impact buildings, signs, and other large structures. Ensure that the structures can support the external environment factors.
Visualize the dispersion of smoke if a fire were to ignite in a facility. Design with safety mitigation in mind through simulation.
Sudlows, one of the UK's leading data center design and build specialists, uses Autodesk CFD and Building Design Suite to reduce inefficiencies, maximize “free-cooling” to minimize power usage, and determine if an existing space can be reconfigured to avoid a costly expansion.
A consulting engineering firm in Oregon, Glumac continues to lead in sustainable design using energy analysis powered by Green Building Studio and Autodesk CFD in a Revit-based design process. They were able to conduct this analysis more quickly by accessing cloud-based services.
