Using CFD for ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1



This webinar will cover how you can use CFD software in your commercial building design in order to meet ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, is the first code-intended commercial green building standard in the United States. This green buildings standard is set to revolutionize the building industry.

CFD applications will include both large and small scale examples. HVAC systems will be considered for aspects such as thermal comfort and indoor air quality (IAQ), as well as energy efficiency.

A 45 minute presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

What You Will Learn

  • What aspects of Standard 189.1 can be considered using CFD software
  • How can CFD software be used to design more efficient buildings
  • How can CFD software determine thermal comfort and IAQ in an occupied space

About the Presenter

Andrew Manning, obtained his BEng in Mechanical Engineering at University of Nottingham in 1991, and his PhD from the same university in 1994. His PhD thesis was titled: ‘Mathematical modeling of Pulverized Coal Fired Power Station Boilers’. He joined the UK office of Flomerics Ltd in 1994 as a Consultant Engineer, and transferred to the MA, US office in January 1997. He is currently the Director of Engineering for the Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics), North America, Mentor Graphics. He has 15 years of Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based modeling experience, covering a wide range of built environment applications, including: health care facilities; laboratory spaces; Cleanrooms; atria; and office and other occupied spaces. He has been the principal CFD modeled in 5 major National Institutes of Health (NIH) studies.

He has authored many publications associated with the work done with NIH, and won two ASHRAE awards (2001 Symposium Paper Award and 2001 Willis H. Carrier Award) for his paper entitled: “Analysis of Air Supply Type and Exhaust Location in Laboratory Animal Research Facilities Using CFD”. Further, he won the U.S. Public Health Service Ninth Annual Engineering Literary Award for the “Surgical Site Protection” study.
