In this tutorial, we simulate the air flow within an office enclosure during a summer design day. The exterior of the office is exposed to a high temperature ambient condition, and the interior is cooled with air conditioning. A seated human occupant is also present to help us assess the ambient comfort. The model is set up and ready for you to run and explore the results.
Before you begin, please watch this short video that demonstrates the steps of the tutorial:
To start: Download the setup model file by clicking here. Save the file to a folder on your computer.
To open the model into Simulation CFD: Double-click on the file from your file browser.
Autodesk® Simulation CFD opens and you should see this:
To run the simulation:
- Click Solve from the Setup (tab) > Simulation (panel):
- On the Solve dialog, click Solve.
You should see the simulation start. This model should take roughly 10 minutes to run.
When it's finished, you should see Analysis completed successfully in the Output Bar:
