About This Item


Full Description

This product is a zip file that contains files that consist of PowerPoint slides synchronized with the audio-recording of the speaker, PDF files of the slides, and audio only (mp3 format) as noted.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) will accurately model "Mega Structures". The engineer can take advantage of the ability of CFD to accurately solve a wide range of applications in support of today's designs. We will look at two very different applications but each sharing the critical need to show accurate solar loading in their analysis. The first analysis will look at a semi-transparent photovoltaic installation; successfully reducing the heating cost in an automotive tunnel. The second analysis will look at conditioning strategies for tall, open spaces with large solar loads. The atrium includes displacement ventilation and an active radiant slab.
