SimScale’s SaaS application for engineering simulation, has added radiation heat transfer analyses using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) within its platform.
Users of the cloud-based platform can now simulate the effects of radiation to optimise a comfortable environment within a room or an entire building, including office spaces, residential dwellings, or theaters.
“The inclusion of radiation, along with standard conduction and convection analyses, is a key ingredient to accurately predicting how placement of HVAC components such as outlets, air conditioning units or heaters will affect the temperatures and airflow felt by occupants,” said SimScale VP Jon Wilde.
“Accurate thermal comfort analysis means better wellness and productivity for occupants and the avoidance of expensive HVAC configuration changes later.”

Fun fact: According to a University of Chicago study, hot weather can cause people’s regular productivity rate to drop by four per cent per degree.
