Republic of Iraq Ministry of Higher Education & Scientific Research University of Technology By: Hyder Mohammed Abdul Hussein ABSTRACT A theoretical study includes details flow turbulence in air-conditioned spaces with the determination of the boundary conditions depending on the Iraqi Code of cooling is done in this research. Two kinds of two- dimensional and three-dimensional ventilation problems have been considered: (a) isothermal ventilation in simple rooms. (b) non-isothermal ventilation with coupled heat or mass transfer. The investigation has studied the flow and thermal conditions for four different diffusers (displacement, grille, slot, and square diffusers). The dimensions of the of the physical model are (5.16×3.65 m) with (2.43 m high). The supply condition for four diffusers are (displacement (0.0768 kg/s), grille (0.0768 kg/s), slot (0.1410 kg/s), square (0.750 kg/s)) and temperature at supply for all types is (15.0 o C), the return considered as the type of diffusers has been imposed zero flow pressure and temperature at (24.0 o C). A modified version of a three-dimensional computer program (fluent 6.3.26) by using finite-volume method was used to simulate the complex flow with buoyant inside the model room. They have been investigated numerically by using several turbulence models and the method solution by using k-ε and k-ω models.

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION The Meaning of Air Conditioning: Full air conditioning implies the automatic control of an atmospheric environment either for the comfort of human beings or animals or for the proper performance of some industrial or scientific process. The adjective 'full' demands that the purity, movement, temperature and relative humidity of the air be controlled, within the limits imposed by the design specification. Ventilation Process: Natural inlet and outlet Natural inlet and mechanical outlet Mechanical inlet and natural outlet Mechanical inlet and outlet

Thermal and Environment Comfort The environmental factors that affect a person’s thermal balance and therefore influence thermal comfort are: The dry bulb temperature of the surrounding air. The humidity of the surrounding air. The relative velocity of the surrounding air. The temperature of any surfaces that can directly view any part of the body and thus exchange radiation. The relative humidity not exceed 60%. ASHRAE Standard 55-2004. The comfort zones of Figure 5 are for air speeds not to exceed 0.2 m/s. INTRODUCTION 1

5
Basic Flow Patterns Occupant comfort is maintained not directly by motion of air from the outlets, but from secondary air motion that results from mixing in the unoccupied zone. Comfort is maximized when uniform temperature distribution and room air velocities of less than 0.25 m/s are maintained in the occupied zone. Group A: Outlets mounted in or near the ceiling that discharge air horizontally. Group B: Outlets mounted in or near the floor that discharge air vertically in a nonspreading jet. INTRODUCTION 1

Group C: Outlets mounted in or near the floor that discharge air vertically in a spreading jet. Group D: Outlets mounted in or near the floor that discharge air horizontally. Group E: Outlets mounted in or near the ceiling that project primary air vertically. INTRODUCTION 1

Types of predictions and CFD preference Designing ventilation systems for buildings require a suitable tool to assess the system performance. Seven types of models assessed (analytical, empirical, small-scale experimental, full-scale experimental, multizone network, zonal, and CFD) for predicting ventilation performance in buildings, which can be different in details according to the model types. The CFD models provided the most detailed information about the performance of ventilation systems in a zone, and were the most accurate of the numerical models, but they are sophisticated and require very dedicated training of a user.

Objectives of the Present Work 1. 1. To carry out computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis for room air distribution at the design flow rate of the diffuser and validate it with experimental data. 2. 2. To simulate indoor air flow. 3. 3. The investigate the possibility of using the Different Supply Patterns as an air distribution system in an office building. 4. 4. To study the effects of changing the locations of inlets and outlets on the flow patterns. INTRODUCTION 1

Boundary conditions: Meshes grid (50 ˣ 28). Dimensions (9.0 m ˣ 3.0 m). Inlet velocity U o =0.455 m/s, V o = 0.0 m/s k o, ε o as defined in equations (4.1) and (4.2). Outlet dp/dx=0 Results: comparisons with experimental data of the prediction results using standard k-ε model and three different near-wall treatments (standard wall-function (SWF), non-equilibrium wall function (NEWF) and enhanced wall treatment (EWF). It can be seen that the predictions from the standard k-ε model and the RNG k-ε have a very little deviation, the Realizable k-ε predicts better the jet flow at X=6m.
