Temperature and flow distribution within a room
In a typical architecture design, the architect determines the building's thermal properties by selecting its wall specification and outside condition to reduce the building's thermal load. However, this method is used assuming a uniform temperature distribution in the room. In reality, the temperature or flow distribution within the room is never uniform, and the thermal load is higher near the wall than the bulk assumption predicts.
In a 3D thermal-fluid analysis, air flow and temperature distribution of an entire space can be computed in a single calculation. Also, the thermal distribution can be predicted by assessing the difference between models, and designer can easily understand the behavior of the analysis results numerically and visually.
