IES Consulting modelled the release of contaminants from a rooftop air handling unit using CFD.

Key Facts

  • Used CFD to model the release of contaminants

IES Consulting used CFD to model the release of contaminants from a rooftop AHU following concerns they may be entrained within the intakes of surrounding AHUs. IES modelled these contaminants as tracers so their spread could be tracked based on configurations of wind speed and direction. IES tested a redesign for the AHU exhaust which safeguarded that the entrainment was reduced to satisfactory levels.
