The aim of this study was to compare the measured effectiveness of an air curtain device at different jet velocities against a three-dimensional (3-D) computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model. The air curtain device was not as wide as the entrance and had a geometry that encouraged 3-D flow. By carefully setting up the air curtain an effectiveness of 0.71 was achieved compared to the initial value of only 0.31 as set by the air curtain device installer. The 3-D CFD model predicted the… CONTINUE READING
