Responsible Design for a Greener Future
This presentation will show you how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis software - can help reduce costs associated with design and operation in the built environment.
It is a well documented fact that the cost of rectifying design mistakes increases rapidly with progress through a project.
If poor design decisions make it through to the final build stage, then the cost of repair is some three orders of magnitude greater than if the problem had been identified during the initial design stage. Often to avoid this, over-engineering can be applied which in itself can lead to increased running costs. By being able to optimize designs to ensure that all objectives are met, then capital and energy costs during operation can be minimized.
What You Will Learn
- How analysis software can facilitate rapid simulation and design decisions
- How real life problems have been rectified with CFD analysis
- The process of a typical design study to compare ventilation proposals
- How CFD software can be used to optimize a ventilation scheme for green design

About the Presenter
Paul achieved his Mechanical Engineering Degree from The City University in 1987. Paul has spent the last 15 years working for Mentor Graphics Corporation, Mechanical Analysis Division (formerly Flomerics Ltd) specializing in the application of CFD to the design of the built environment and electronic equipment. Prior to this he worked for the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) in a role that covered both physically and numerical modeling.
Currently, Paul is a Senior Application Engineer in the engineering team of Mentor’s Mechanical Analysis Division, training and supporting the user base to enhance the accessibility of thermal analysis to the engineering designer. Over these many years he has gained significant experience, not only in the use of software, but also of the general design processes and the best way to apply CFD techniques to real world problems encountered by engineers’ everyday.
