CFD in the Data Center: It’s Not About the Hall



This webinar shows how leading data center designers are using FloVENT air flow modeling software to rapidly develop airflow models not only of the data hall but also of the sub-systems that allow the data center to operate efficiently and reliably.

The high density of equipment in modern data halls means designers have to be sure that precious cooling air is getting where it is needed, even when parts of the cooling system are down. This is the perfect job for airflow modeling software that allows a designer or architect to rapidly test and re-test a computer room cooling design.

What You Will Learn

  • How CFD models of data centers are developed
  • Use of CFD in data center simulation
  • Modeling data halls
