Displacement Ventilation

Application ID: 4437

In general, there are two classes of ventilation: mixing ventilation and displacement ventilation. In displacement ventilation, air enters a room at the floor level and displaces warmer air to achieve the desired temperature. Heating sources in the room can include running electronic devices, or inlet jets of warm air. A potential issue with the displacement ventilation approach is that significant temperature variation and strong stratification may arise.

The model investigates the performance of a displacement ventilation system. The flow is modeled using the Non-Isothermal Turbulent Flow, k-omega Model interface.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
