EMAEE November 2014 Meeting - 11/11/14 @ Lawrence Tech
The East Michigan Association of Energy Engineers invites you to attend their meeting on Tuesday November 11, 2014.

Application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for Built Environment

By: Kishor Khankari, Ph.D.
Dr. Kishor Khankari, Ph.D., is a President and owner of AnSight LLC. A specialist in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), he works closely with his clients to provide engineering insights and optimized design solutions using analytical techniques. Kishor has several years of experience in providing consulting services that have resulted in the development of solutions to a wide variety of engineering problems involving fluid flow, heat transfer, mass transfer, and other similar engineering processes. Dr. Khankari has developed a patented technology of a wind band design of exhaust fan assembly systems. He has developed several easy-to-use analytical software tools, which are regularly used by design engineers in a variety companies including those in the critical facility and automotive industries.
A noted expert in his field, he has a Ph.D. in CFD from the University of Minnesota and has been regularly publishing in several technical journals and trade magazines. Dr. Khankari is an eloquent speaker and has made presentations on topics related to design and optimization of HVAC systems at various technical conferences and professional meetings. ASHRAE recognized him as a Distinguished Lecturer.
Dr. Kishor Khankari is an active member of ASHRAE both at local and national level. He is past President of Detroit ASHRAE Chapter. He is serving as a Chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee TC9.11 Clean Spaces and a Member of Research Administration Committee (RAC) at national level.

Summary of presentation:
Air is the primary carrier of heat, moisture, contaminants in the built environment. It is not just the building envelope and efficient HVAC systems but also prudent utilization of cooling and ventilation air play important role in energy efficient buildings. Just meeting the air change requirements alone cannot guarantee the efficient utilization of the valuable resource, that is, the ventilation air. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) predicts airflow patterns, temperature and relative humidity distribution, thermal comfort parameters, and effectiveness of ventilation for indoor and outdoor spaces. CFD has been widely used in a variety of industrial sectors for analysis, and optimization of the designs. AnSight LLC has employed it as an analysis tool for a variety of HVAC applications and provided valuable design directions to several clients. CFD This educational presentation will show various applications of CFD analysis for built environment including displacement ventilation, active and passive chilled beams, airflow in enclosed spaces, smoke propagation in atria, clean rooms, patient rooms and ORs, cooling tower plume dispersion, external wind engineering and more. We will discuss how it can be employed in the analysis and optimization of HVAC designs starting at the conceptual stage.
