Comparing zonal and CFD models of air flows in large indoor spaces to experimental data

  • Published 2011


Algebraic multi-zone infiltration models (e.g. COMIS, CONTAM) have been developed to predict air flows and contaminant transport in complex buildings. However these models assume that each building zone is a well-mixed volume. This assumption is not appropriate to model large indoor spaces. We describe two simplified approaches, called zonal methods, to… (More)
