Thermal Comfort Analysis

Thermal Comfort Analysis is at the core of what our ESD consultants do at our Singapore office in BroadTech Engineering.
An energy efficient building is one that performs well thermally and offers occupants within the building interior space an optimal level of thermal comfort

Using thermal comfort analysis, we as an ESD consultancy can ensure the thermal comfort of occupants and accurately predict the ambient temperature of the building interior space in different seasonal weather, specific times of day and sun path situations.

By having an in-depth engineering simulation and Energy modelling analysis of the thermal temperature distribution and human comfort against thermal measurement indexes such as PMV (Predicted Mean Vote), we as a Green building consultancy can help you to implement building design measures to ensure a stable and moderate thermal environment, as defined by the international ISO requirements, which generally satisfy the large majority of the building internal occupants.

Factors to Consider when Designing for Human Thermal Comfort

There is a range of critical factors that building design consultants need to consider when implementing green building design which is designed for maximizing the occupant thermal comfort.
Some of the factors include

1. Air Movement Velocity

Computer simulation of the rate of air movement over a given distance and time using airflow simulation

2. General Human Metabolic rate

Thermal energy generated and emitted from the surface of the human body

3. Radiant Temperature

The weighted mean average of all the thermal temperatures from the thermal emission surfaces surrounding a building occupant and sun’s thermal energy (using Daylight analysis, solar radiation analysis, and Sun path Analysis)

4. Relative Humidity of Surrounding Air

Percentage of water vapor in the air

5. Ambient Air Temperature of Building Interior Space

Thermal temperature of the immediate ambient air surrounding the human occupant using building airflow modeling

6. Insulation Properties of the Human Clothing Material

The amount of thermal insulation the person is wearing

Featured Thermal Comfort Analysis Case Studies

CERN CEDAR Thermal Comfort Simulation Analysis (CHT, Conjugate Heat Transfer)

CEDAR counters are CErenkov Differential counters with Achromatic Ring focus. These counters are available in some of the high-energy beamlines to obtain particle identification data for individual particles in that beamline. The performance of the CEDAR counters is strongly dependent on the beam optics. For ultimate performance, a highly parallel beam is required.
A CFD simulation is required for one of the CEDAR at CERN, where we want to study flow and temperature distribution inside CEDAR with target temperature rise of less than 0.3 deg C. There is heat generation source within the CEDAR of 20W with the heat flux of 43.48W/m^2. With the heat source, a long passage of helium is stored, which is maintained at a constant temperature of 23 deg C. The CEDAR is insulated from the atmosphere with polyurethane.
The objective was to predict the pressure drop across the inlet and outlet of the air passage, temperature drop, and the heat flow from air to detector.
Detector and Insulation were treated as solids with proper material properties.
Unstructured mesh with proper interface with solids
Turbulence K-epsilon model with scalable wall function
Boundary Condition:
Detector Wall: Fixed Temperature
Air Inlet Velocity and Temperature
Ambient Temperature: 30 deg C
Several design iterations were performed. The objective was met the design modification done based on CFD predictions.

Thermal Assessment of 5000SQFT Datacenter Facility

The objective of this project was to study the airflow distribution, cooling efficiency, overheating of server cabinets and IT equipment, containment strategies, hot spots and cold spots, hot air recirculation and cold by-pass of 5000SQFT datacenter facility. 6SigmaRoom was used for building the model, meshing, and CFD analysis.
