Ventilation Simulation & Experiment Data
Dear all,

I am doing a CFD simulation of ventilation process (including heat transfer) in a spacecraft cabin under micorgravity( FLUENT5. I need to validate my turbulence model and calculation results with ground-based experiment data and then by seting g=0 to extrapolate it to microgravity environment. I need urgently some ventilation experiment data on ground in 3D(isotherm/non-isotherm, with/without obstacles, preferably in a mixing ventilation case) in buildings or in similar cases, can some one of you share with me your experiment results (if any) or give me some pointers where I can find some of them? Any feedback are highly appreciated and thank you very much for your kind help in advance.

try the following reference ...

Srebric J., Chen Q., & Glicksman L.R., 1999 "Validation of a zero-equation turbulence model for complex indoor airflow simulation," ASHRAE Trans. Vol. 105, Part 2, Paper number 4312 (RP-927), pp. 414-427.

Hi Walter,

Thank you for your kind feedback. I know there are many good infos in ASHRAE Transactions and Building & Energy, unfortunately I don't have access to them, so I hope some of you who have access to them or have some infos at hand can share with me your results.

Best regards,
