## Air Conditioning of an Office by Two Fans, ANSYS Fluent CFD Simulation Tutorial

The present study simulated the performance of fan-driven airflow inside an office for HVAC operation, including 1 computer and 4 lamps. The computer is made of plastic and is considered a heat source equivalent to 700 W/m3, while each lamp material is glass and has a heat source equal to 2500 W/m3.

We install two fans on the upper part of two office walls to transfer airflow into the office. We also assumed that the doors and windows of the office have convection heat transfer by ambient air.

## Methodology

The present 3-D model was designed by Design Modeler software. The geometry consists of a cubic space called the office for HVAC operation, composed of several components, including people, lamps, computers, desks, and so on.

An unstructured mesh was performed using ANSYS Meshing software. Meshing has been done more accurately for the internal components of the office. In this mesh, the element number is equal to 547820.

Since, in the present model, the airflow is blown by the fans at a rapid rate, the ideal gas model is used to define the air because the airflow is compressible during the process.

Incompressible flows, the density is not a constant value and varies with pressure and temperature, which is calculated by the relation of the ideal gas law.

## Conclusion

The problem goal is to investigate the effect of blown airflow on the components and people in the office. Also, we simulate the influence of airflow on the heat sources applied in the model. The velocity and thermal performance of the 2 fans are easily visible from related contours and vectors.

Every fan has a polynomial porous jump identified in the Fluent software. Also, considering a few heat sources, the HVAC performance of these two fans for this large office seems reasonable.

After using these fans, was the airflow sufficient to reach all areas of the office, or were there zones with stagnation or insufficient circulation?

• MR CFD Support

In the simulation, airflow patterns were closely examined to ensure the whole office was adequately covered. Streamlines and velocity contours indicated that the fans were effective, with good distribution across the space and minimal areas of stagnation or insufficient circulation. Airflow did reach all zones within the office.
