Can anyone recommend a solver for a heating and ventilation CFD problem? Flow around an open plan office with computers and AC is ideal. Relative pros and cons of the software is also valuable knowledge. Thanks!

Try coolit, www.daat.com. I assume any of electronics cooling codes, like coolit or flotherm can do this easily.

A similar question has been posted before.

To add to the codes suggested above you might do well to also search the archives for past similar threads. That way you may get a broader response.

You could also look at the current hvac research oriented literature to see what studies have been undertaken and look to see what codes have been used.

That way YOU can compare their configuations to yours and see if the code appears to have the functionality to handle YOUR problem.

In addition to which why not contact the code vendors and ask for references to case study examples that are similar in nature to yours.

Hope this helps.

Peter, Currently I am working on a dedicated front end for STAR-CD for just such problems. While we are still a few months away ( I hope) from a beta product. I am very interested in a real problem from a real potential end user. Is there any chance I can get a detailed problem description. I may be able to arrange a demonstration analysis.

What CAD program are you using?

Oh, the working title of the software is es-bart. Thats expert system for building and room thermofluids.

You can get an overview of the product at www.cd-adapco.com You should be able to find some pretty pictures(after all this is colorful fluid dynamics).

Send me an email direct if you are interested in more information
