Experimental Verification of CFD Predicted Performance of Flow Dampers
Concern for indoor air quality is having a tremendous impact upon the design and operation of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The basic role of dampers in HVAC systems, common installation arrangements, and the current lack of sufficient data for proper design/selection of dampers are examined. How computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is providing some of the necessary data and the experimental investigations that are highly desirable for substantiating these data are highlighted.
