In building design, CFD is typically used to model the movement and temperature of air within spaces. This is important as it allows designers to investigate internal conditions before a building is built, allowing them to test options and select the most effective solutions.
- GE3S portfolio of provides hard evidence of our many successful CFD consulting projects. These consulting endeavors include conditioned air systems and ventilation to name just a few. CFD can also be used to investigate the impact of a new building on air movement around a site, and has been used to model other ‘fluid’ behavior, such as the movement of people.
GE3S CFD analysis can be used for modelling:
- The thermal comfort of occupants.
- The distribution of environmental conditions within a space.
- The effectiveness of building services (such as the positioning of air inlets and extracts or radiators).
- The consequences of fire (such as the spread of heat and smoke).
- The effectiveness of natural ventilation (such as the stack effect).
- The buildup of heat in specialist spaces such as server rooms.
- The positioning of sensors.
