Have you been wondering, “What do I need to know about SOLIDWORKS HVAC simulation?” Worry not! We will explain briefly in this blog.

HVAC simulation allow you to perform

  • Airflow Optimization – Manage the airflow within a large-scale environment ensures that the optimum temperature is maintained within the human comfort temperature
  • Product Thermal Design – The HVAC Applications Module simulates airflow in the environment and products used in the environment, considering real-world behaviours or criteria applied in the simulation.
  • Human Comfort Factors – The effectiveness of environmental control is measured by eight human comfort factors that evaluate both the reaction of people and the environment.
  • Tracer Study – Simulate the flow of an admixture in an existing carrier fluid to evaluate the effectiveness of a ventilation system in removing contaminant

The simulation tools can be used in SOLIDWORKS HVAC

  • Advanced Radiation modeling –Thermal radiation can have a major effect on cooling requirements. Understanding the impact of material choices requires sophisticated radiation modeling that’s included in the HVAC Applications Module.
  • Comfort parameters – “Predicted mean vote” (PMV) and “Predicted percent dissatisfied” (PPd) are the two main comfort parameters out of eight calculated by the HVAC Applications Module. These parameters identify where there are problems in thermal comfort level, so you can resolve them before the cooling system is built.
  • Tracer Study – When an admixture substance (such as a contaminant) diffuses in a carrier fluid, you can evaluate the mass fraction of the substance as well as the local Air Quality index (lAQi) and Contaminant removal Effectiveness (CrE) parameters to determine the effectiveness of the ventilation system.
  • Engineering database – An enhanced engineering database includes a wide range of building materials and fans so you can do thermal analysis quickly and efficiently.
