Computational Fluid Dynamics Analysis

Efficiency and occupant comfort are key in developing building ventilation systems. Drafts, temperature variations, and other factors can pose major challenges in designing and maintaining an effective ventilation system. By predicting and measuring these factors, design teams can anticipate and mitigate challenges for a more efficient completed design. Through a process called computational fluid dynamics analysis, we can put design schemes to the test and gain valuable insight about their performance.

LKPB Engineers uses computational fluid dynamics analysis to develop cutting-edge strategies for building ventilation systems, resulting in a more comfortable and efficient finished product. Through computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, we provide you with accurate predictions of your building’s performance.

What is Computational Fluid Dynamics Analysis?
LKPB’s computational fluid dynamics analysis service offers the ability to simulate heat transfer and fluid flow, and evaluate product performance. In the context of a building structure, understanding and predicting fluid flow and heat transfer allows for more informed, functional design. Our computational fluid dynamics analysis service provides you with opportunity to model air movement and temperature, and replicate specific conditions, before your building is completed.

Conducting CFD analysis is fairly complex, and requires a deep understanding of the methods and software used in order to arrive at a credible solution. Our team is highly experienced in CFD analysis, and is able to interpret the results to provide you with cost-effective and insightful solutions.

The Benefits of Informed, Functional Design
Simulations created using computational fluid dynamics analysis allow you to test various options, and choose the most efficient and cost-effective solutions, quickly and easily. CFD analysis provides an accurate simulation of the indoor environment of a building, as well as the outdoor environment that surrounds it.

With the insight gained through CFD analysis, stakeholders can more easily develop a plan that achieves more satisfactory results. As a design assistance tool, CFD analysis is especially well-suited to the early stages of design and construction projects.

  • A Better Finished Product. CFD analysis provides you with the information needed to design systems that operate more efficiently, for a safer and more comfortable environment for occupants.

  • Develop Effective Solutions. Determine optimal position for temperature sensors, and services such as radiators and air inlets. CFD analysis helps you create optimal flow and better thermal management.

  • Save on Design Costs. Eliminate the need to build expensive prototypes, and test a variety of scenarios and options cost-effectively. Ventilation system effectiveness can be assessed before construction has started.

  • Avoid Costly Redesigns. Save time and reduce costs by eliminating the need to redesign or rework systems.

Thorough Analysis of Key Systems
Our computational fluid dynamics analysis service is able to simulate both internal and external air flow, as well as thermal problems. Through CFD, we can accurately predict external static pressure, external air flow direction and velocity, and internal air flow temperature, direction, and velocity.

CFD analysis is an effective and efficient tool to help you reduce costs and build a better finished product. LKPB Engineers is passionate about developing the right solutions for building owners, architects, and occupants.
