Validation of a CFD model for several displacement ventilation geometries

Fläkt Woods, which manufactures a wide range of ventilation equipment, has undertaken a programme of experimental verification of the concepts of new displacement ventilation equipment, as well as validation of a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) package

Estudio tipologico de los locales residenciales segun su sistema de ventilacion natural Study of local housings with their system of natural ventilation

In this paper, different types of local housings have been classified (housing with two facades, housing with two facades in angle or in corner, housing with facade and interior patios, housing with an only facade, embedded housings, in several heights) with the aim of defining the natural ventilation's parameters for them. Then simulations can be made with the selected types along with the validation of results.

Broadband fan noise prediction using single-airfoil theory - Part 2: experimental validation.

The analytical model described in the first part of the paper is partially validated here by comparing the theoretical results to experimental data collected in a series of model test experiments in an open-jet anechoic wind tunnel. The emphasis is on the validation of the trailing-edge noise model. A comparison is made with existing numerical computations in the literature. The transfer function is found to be roughly invariant with respect to flow conditions encountered on an isolated airfoil. Furthermore, a first application of the model to a cooling fan is presented.

Prediction of the noise installation effect induced by a bend at the inlet of an axial flow fan

This paper presents a comparison of the predicted and measured acoustic system effect induced by a box with a lateral opening at the inlet of an axial flow fan. The objective of this study carried out on an academic configuration, is to develop and validate prediction models for real cases.

Validation of CONTAMW predictions for tracer gas in a townhouse

To provide additional validation data for the multizone airflow and contaminant model, CONTAMW, experiments were performed in an occupied 3-story townhouse in Reston, VA. A tracer gas, sulfur hexaflouride (SF6), was manually injected within one room of the house and the concentration of SF6 was measured in each zone. This same process was then recreated in CONTAMW and the resulting predictions were statistically compared to the measured values. A total of 10 experiments were conducted and simulated between May 2000 and June 2001.

Simulation of mixed convection flow in a room with a two-layer turbulence model.

Most indoor airflows are mixed convection. In order to simulate mixed convection accurately and efficiently, this paper uses a two-layer turbulence model. The two-layer model combines a one-equation model for near wall flow together with the standard k-E model for outer-wall flow. The model has been used to predict the mixed convection by displacement ventilation in an office. The computed results agree well with the corresponding airflow pattern and the distributions of air temperature , air velocity, air velocity fluctuation, and tracer-gas concentration.
