The purpose of the work described in this paper is to develop a mathematical model of downdraft exhaust hoods in order that ways of improving these hoods efficiency can be examined. In this initial study the model developed is twodimensional. The flow has been assumed to be ideal and the complex potential considered. By use of conformal mappings the airflow in the vicinity of a bench, which is extracting air and also has air being blown down from above, is modelled. Various ratios of extraction to downdraft are considered in order to investigate the most efficient method of operation.
