Robin Bornoff We knapped our first flints about 2,000,000 years ago and started to shelter from the elements in caves and simple huts about 200,000 years ago. As industries go the building industry is probably the oldest, well maybe second oldest. Our ability to both adapt to and manipulate our surroundings has set us apart from the beasts on a path of science, art and technology. Over the coming weeks, months … Read More

Robin Bornoff Computational Fluid Dynamics, CFD, is a simulation technology that provides 3D predictions of fluid flow and heat transfer for a modelled system. Be it an electronics enclosure or a building, insights into the often complex air flow patterns can help designers better understand the physical behaviour of their design. Communication of such insights helps others to appreciate the sometimes painful design … Read More

A Load of HVAC TLAs

Posted by Robin Bornoff

Robin Bornoff As humans we’ve lived in ‘built environments’ for a very long time.  From the cave to the penthouse suite, the necessity to at first stay warm and dry has now evolved into the desire for comfort. The HVAC industry, rather those with the responsibility to design the built environment, have at their disposal a range of metrics used to judge comfort (comfortability? comfortness? comfortitude? comfortosity? … Read More

John Wilson As an engineer who uses CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) extensively I spend most of my professional life designing in the box. So, what do I mean by box? When considering the built environment a box could be a room such as an office space, building, clean room, data center, etc. For electronics cooling applications there is rack, sub-rack, pizza box,  set-top box, etc. While electronics cooling … Read More
