Please suggest the possible boundary condtions for the domain. my doubts are as follows: 1. The atmospheric air is existing outside the room. if i give atmopheric pressure for the window inlet,then how i have to calculate total pressure. 2. What about the heat generation from the floor. if the heat generation value for a human body is 120 w/m2.then what is heat generation value i have to give for the total floor if four occupants are present. 3.If possible please give any tutorial for solving the flow problem in room . I am eagerly waiting for your reply.

Give atmospheric pressure for inlet boundary, FLUENT will calculate total pressure automatically based on model height and air density. 2. You will have to assume a surface area for the human body. A cylinder of 5 ft high by 2.5 ft diameter is close. 3. Nothing I have seen in the FLUENT manuals.
