Problem Description for an Office HVAC

The present study examines the performance of fan-driven airflow inside an office for HVAC operation, including a computer and four lamps. The computer is made of plastic and is considered as a heat source equivalent to 700 W.m-3, while each lamp material is glass and a heat source equal to 2500 W.m-3. On the upper part of two walls of the office, we install two fans to transfer airflow into the office. We also assumed that the doors and windows of the office have convection heat transfer by ambient air. 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 Assumption for HVAC simulation

We consider several hypotheses for this simulation:

The office HVAC simulation is STEADY-STATE, and the solver is PRESSURE-BASED.

We consider the effect of gravity on the flow to be 9.81 m.s-2, because of the natural convection phenomenon caused by the buoyancy force in this model.

Geometry and Mesh

The present 3-D model was designed by Design Modeler software. The geometry consists of a cubic space called the office for HVAC operation, which consists of several components, including human, lamp, computer, desk 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 network, the element number is 547820.
