HVAC

Whether it be integrated ducting design, refrigeration cycles with complicated refrigerations or costing calculations Flownex® simulation environment is the perfect tool to effortlessly execute all the above tasks and a lot more.

OVERVIEW

Flownex® includes a comprehensive component library for analysing large custom HVAC systems. This enables engineers to quantify conditions through the entire HVAC system in both steady state and transient operation. Furthermore, Flownex contains the complex fluid models needed to simulate accident scenarios and help engineers prove the safety of their designs.

APPLICATIONS

DESIGN AND OPTIMISE ADVANCED HVAC SYSTEMS

  • Complete solution to calculate temperature, humidity, and pressure requirements
  • Achieve optimum flow distribution with maximum energy efficiency
  • Investigate varying environmental conditions on HVAC system and improve design
  • Sizing of flow control components, fans, and refrigeration cycles

IMPROVE OVERALL EFFICIENCY

  • Balance and optimise plant (air streams, chilled water streams, cooling towers, heat exchangers, refrigeration cycles)
  • Evaluate different control strategies by comparing total power consumption
  • Investigation different heat recovery systems to quantify cost saving potential

INVESTIGATE RISK AND PERFORM DESIGN SAFETY

  • Analyse the capabilities of a system to maintain negative pressure environments in accident scenarios
  • Simulate the operating of critical systems when failures occur in the primary control system to ensure that the redundant control systems function correctly in maintaining safe conditions after a failure
  • Analyse the spread contaminants though the system during accident scenarios using the mixed fluid models in Flownex to investigate and provide insights into the effectiveness of key safety systems
