how the song goes, there actually is something like the real thing.
Here, one consulting firm reports on its own use of CFD - when to
deploy it, how to incorporate it in given situations, and what kinds
of benefits it can yield. From identifying trouble spots in fume
ventilation to making a school district more comfortable with
committing to underfloor air, the advantages can add up.
Integration has been the buzzword for this Colorado district, even going back to the way funding was obtained. From a hydronics system designed with simplicity and smart sequencing in mind to right-sizing throughout the project, engineers made this school a study in simultaneously pursuing first-cost and long-term performance success.
Why was one floor’s laboratory ventilation failing to keep up, when it was even the closest floor to the rooftop fans? Some system sleuthing led two engineers to a fitting conclusion. Read more stories in May Issue 2017.
