Recently, Island kitchen is installed in many houses in Japan. In the island kitchen, the cooking range is placed on the island unit, and the center hood is located above the cooking flow in the room. In such a kitchen environment, there is a possibility that cross winds or other disturbing flow may reach the cooking zone. For this reason, pollutant fumes from the cooking range may be diffused to residential zone. CFD analysis is an effective measure for comprehending such a diffusion of the thermal plume.
