Numerical Modelling of Large Air-Conditioned Space: Comparison of Two Ventilation Systems

This paper presents a comparative study based on CFD simulation between the performance of Impinging Jet Ventilation (IJV) and Mixing Ventilation (MV) systems in providing indoor air quality and thermal comfort for a mechanically ventilated occupied large open plan office (floor-to-ceiling height > 5m). Large spaces differ from spaces with standard heights because of the significant upward stratification.

A numerical and experimental investigation of a flat plate collector

Radiative cooling systems by means of nocturnal longwave radiation have captured the attention of today’s specialists involved in the construction building process. While most of the systems incorporate a flat-plate radiator that utilizes water, the prese

Development and validation of a zonal model - POMA.

Describes a simplified numerical model, POMA (Pressurized zOnal Model with Air-diffuser, intended to predict the airflow pattern and thermal distributions within a room. The authors introduced jet characteristic equations into the model to make its application general for mechanically ventilated buildings. The models prediction was compared with experimental results and with that of another zonal model and a CFD model. Both natural and forced ventilation were considered. States that the findings show that the POMA model is a practical tool for ventilation system design.
