Autonomous HVAC CFD

Autonomous HVAC CFD is a cloud-based software application that utilizes computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and artificial intelligence (AI) to optimize HVAC system design for buildings. It simplifies the HVAC design process by automating many of the tasks involved, making it accessible to a wider range of users. Key features of Autonomous HVAC CFD:
  • Autonomous CFD simulation : The software automatically generates a CFD model of the building based on its BIM (Building Information Model) data and autonomously runs CFD simulation. This eliminates the need for users to have specialized CFD expertise.
  • Simulate Multiple Design Configuration and Scenario: The software can evaluate a wide range of HVAC design options, including different air distribution systems, mechanical systems, occupancy scenarios, and weather scenarios. This helps to ensure that the selected design meets the desired thermal comfort, indoor air quality (IAQ)
  • AI-powered optimization: The software uses AI algorithms to optimize the HVAC design based on the desired performance criteria. Using this feature ComfortAI user can have efficient occupant thermal comfort checks, accelerating design optimization iterations
  • Ready to share report : The software also provides detailed load calculation report consisting of required space design loads, system loads, and Airflow requirements and comprehensive compliance report based on ASHRAE standard 55 that provides overall insights over PMV and local thermal discomfort.
