The conditioned air is an important element in healthcare applications. One of the main objectives of supplying conditioned air to healthcare facilities is to create proper comfortable combination of temperature, humidity, and air motion as well as to remove airborne bacterial, microorganisms, and air contaminants. So the air distribution must meet specified conditions of air change rates, velocity, pressure, cleanliness, temperature, humidity, and noise level. The present work fosters mathematical modelling techniques to primarily predict what happens in the air-conditioned healthcare spaces (Surgical Operating Theatre) in terms of flow regimes, turbulence, heat transfer and their interactions. The present work also demonstrates the effect of room design and operational parameters on performance and heat transfer under various operating parameters.
