Hi everyone, I would like to know if Autodesk Simulation CFD 2012 is suitable for simulating airflow in a building with ventilation system? I see that the software use finite element method to discretize the partial differential equations instead of finite volume control method. How can I evaluate the conservation of mass, momentum and energy in this software? How about funtion of the mesher in this software? Thank you very much for your time.

Best,
Li

This is definitely possible and there are a lot of successful customers in this space.

Check out these pages from the CFdesign website for some specifics (as of yet I know no equivalent link on the Autodesk domain):

I am interested in these topic. I am now BIM tools user, and use Revit as my platform. I would like to do some sample on HVAC and other related simulation of Building industry regarding CFD. Is there any sample that I could try?

I found the following Quick Start Guide for Simulation CFD (CFdesign) and Revit by Googling "CFD for Revit". There are some sample models attached to it:
