Design of Health Care Facilities Using Computational Fluid Dynamics
On-demand Web Seminar
This webinar considers the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the study of health care facilities, and their value in designing an effective ventilation system in them. Various case studies are considered, with emphasis on the improvement in the design through interpretation of the results, and optimization of the systems.
What You Will Learn
- How CFD software can help you determine the temperature, airflow and contaminant distributions in health care facilities
- How CFD software can help you to improve the design of the ventilation system in health care facilities
- How you can analyze ‘what if’ designs before construction, or retro-fitting
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.
