Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Computational Fluid Dynamics

3S MEP’s CFD engineers have years of experience in fluid dynamics problem solving through numerical methods and algorithms. In 3S MEP we are proud to offer our specialist services in CFD modeling tailor-made for HVAC and comfort ventilation.

Using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technology, we can finely tune your HVAC installation to meet specific requirements before even mounting a single piece of equipment onboard your ship.

CFD enables us to realistically simulate air flows within the project space in advance. As a result, we can accurately predict where deficiencies in the HVAC system may occur, such as drafts, high levels of turbulence, high-pressure drop, and poor air distribution.

CFD considers everything from the influence of sunlight to the layout of the rooms and the placement of air vents around furnishings, resulting in a comfort analysis and/or product validation. The goal is to figure out the best air circulation solutions for the specific project space.

Building Environments

Over the years, our expertise in the analysis of airflow, heat, humidity, and contamination for sensible environments has created significant value for multiple building environments such as bio-pharma facilities, laboratories, industrial enclosures, warehouses, greenhouses, underground environments, server rooms, and office buildings. Typical projects will usually target ventilation design, air quality, thermal comfort, humidity control, or contaminant control. We have worked extensively on containment strategies for cleanrooms and laboratories, the configuration of refrigerated spaces, identifying gas leaks for assessment of explosive limits or workers’ exposure, improving thermal comfort in offices, and assessing indices of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

We utilize ANSYS Fluent, ANSYS CFX, Autodesk CFD, and Open FOAM on high-performance workstations with excellent computational capabilities to accurately predict flow behavior and validate the design before manufacturing.

As a full-service engineering company, we have remained a trusted partner for clients spread across the globe.

Architectural (AEC) engineering analyses can be classified into three major categories:

  • Natural Ventilation.
  • Wind Loading
  • Mechanical Ventilation

Natural Ventilation

Natural ventilation is the process of supplying and removing air through an indoor space without the use of a fan or another mechanical system. Natural ventilation is driven by wind and stack effects based on temperature and pressure differences, as well as on outdoor wind speeds. So for these factors, you must add the building’s position, wind exposure, or entrance locations all of which need to be tested.

Wind Load

We use CFD simulation to assess the overall wind load affecting buildings in the most extreme conditions or for different wind speeds and directions. With multiple buildings in a block the flow of wind can accelerate, producing localized wind gusts at the pedestrian level. This variable, and others, needs to be calculated already in the design phase.

Wind Load

Mechanical Ventilation

Mechanical, or forced ventilation, is a type of HVAC system where a combination of blowers, ducts, fans, or filters, etc. are used to bring and remove air from a space. This type of ventilation is very effective in controlling air quality, humidity, and temperature.
