OpenFoam+Butterfly: Natural and Mechanical Ventilation Studies




October 19, 2017

The second webinar will build right where the first stops. We will learn how to quantify performance of our designs in respect to Natural Ventilation and Pedestrian Comfort, using all Ladybug Tools in the process. We will focus on combined external/internal models for assessing NVP. We will also go through how to set up custom made function objects which will calculate important parameters for us, combining Rhino and BF/OF functionality. Finally, a simple indoor simulation study will be conducted to assess HVAC performance. 

Date & Time: Thu, Oct 19, 2017; 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM PDT
