CFD analysis for the evaluation of the air flow within a climate control unit
Considering the value of numerical analysis for new product design
Climaveneta SpA enlisted the support of EnginSoft to assess the possible advantages of using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis in its new product design process. The objective of the study was to create a virtual model of Climaveneta’s new ACU171 Expanded Close Control Unit and then match the numerical results with the experimental measures. Afterwards, the engineers tested some geometric modifications to optimize the distribution of the air flow velocity on the filter surface to improve the unit’s heat exchange properties. This brief technical article describes how the study was undertaken and the results obtained.
