Used as part of the design of new buildings and assessment of existing buildings is expanding. With the increasing focus on air quality and exceptional control over thermal comfort utilizing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) with Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) will continue to expand.

One way to reduce the amount of energy required for any building is by optimizing the HVAC System. For example, in the U.S. and Europe, buildings consume more than 40% of the total energy produced. Analyses the flow and optimizing the HVAC Design leads to reductions in unnecessary energy consumption and, more importantly, energy loss. However, all HVAC load calculations are rooted in the assumption that the air in a building or space is well-mixed and has a uniform temperature (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), 2017).

These types of assumptions result in disregarding standard features of air distribution such as stratification, thermal, humidity, and convection currents in the load calculations. But architecture often creates situations where “best practice or rule of thumbs” assumptions no longer apply. Simple analysis has shown that in the right hands, utilizing CFD analysis (Flow Analysis) services leads to reductions in overall HVAC demand by optimizing air distribution in the space. Optimizing the HVAC system leads to a smaller, more efficient design delivering better airflow characteristics and thermal comfort. To obtain an optimized design, the engineering team has to determine and prove the correct placement and design of the air supply, return, and exhaust ports with the proper volumetric flow.
