CFD

When it comes to building ventilation, whether new construction or retrofits, it’s all about energy efficiency, healthcare and occupant comfort. UES is adopting attest technologies to accomplish Efficiency and Comfort. We perform airflow analysis before the first brick is laid. Reduce risk while optimizing efficiency. Our CFD modelers show the functionality of ventilation, air-conditioning and thermal systems to provide proof of concept early in the project and contribute to our holistic design approach that maximizes energy efficiency.

Buildings currently represent 40{84c6d669113bab01bc05647affae7936a1b677516356c5219ce60af989268d96} of all global energy consumption, so it’s no wonder there is such a push towards net-zero energy (NZEB) and LEED certified buildings and more sustainable design initiatives. Compounding the issue is rising energy costs and a growing global population spawning the need for more construction. Occupants expect a well-conditioned atmosphere when in a public building, so mitigating local thermal discomfort factors such as drafts, cyclic variations in operative temperature and radiant temperature asymmetry is yet another challenge in designing an effective ventilation system.

Our team of simulation specialists partner with MEP and architectural team to uncover the flow, particle tracing, thermal and humidity insight required to push the boundaries of today’s ventilation strategies and produce more environmentally responsible designs that cater to the thermal comforts of their occupants. With particle tracing, we can implement clean designs for isolation rooms, BSL labs, clean rooms, wards and operation theater; covering all the aspects of a healthcare facility and pharmaceuticals.

UES uses advanced simulation software, known as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), to model real world ventilation, IAQ, wind dispersion and energy-related problems. This state of the art tool is routinely used by our experts during design to maximize efficiency, effectiveness and safety. We further provide CFD services for already existing buildings and facilities to evaluate the existing design and then suggest improvements to meet the required standards.

Our engineers simulate and evaluate a multitude of building environments. Using the most accurate numerical tools available, our team assesses:

  • Natural Ventilation
