you can develop your code to do all these things. it depends on yourself.
open-foam is a strong code for cfd purposes.

Hi,

Download ICON hvacFOAM 1.7 (Audi Suppliers)
http://iconcfd.com/de/customer-support/hvacfoam never used it myself, just heard of it
=>but I believe it is not that easy to use that out of the box, but perhaps better than nothing.

OF is quite often used for Aircraft Cabin simulations http://www.openfoamworkshop.org/6th_...r_webel_ab.pdf just as an example

Are you professionally interested in HVAC => you might be interested to spend some money to some of the consulting companys (Engys or Icon ...) and get a working HVAC enviroment + solver + training etc.

I am not affiliated with any OF consulting company ;-).

Dear ATE,

sorry I can not help you very much, I just knew the existance of the HVAC solver from them.
First if all I want to say that hvacFOAM 1.7 was developed on OF 1.7, so to get it run, you should have a OF 1.7 installation. the OpenFoam team changed things heavilly during the versions from time to time and to make the nescessary changes to transfer solver from 1.7 to 2.x can be tricky!

Maybe a good start to get used to tasks you have to cope with is these links http://web.student.chalmers.se/group...g/UserView.pdf
