In large architectural or industrial volumes, the air movements and heat transfers proves to be extremely difficult to understand. Indeed, these latter are influenced by the strong existing coupling between the multiplicity of physical phenomena, the hvac systems and external climatic conditions (wind, temperature, humidity, solar radiation …)
The computational methods used by the company OPTIFLOW allow to accurately characterize and quantify the resulting spatial inhomogeneities in the airflow and thermal repartition.
A close collaboration with the different teams involved in the projects, allows OPTIFLOW to improve and develop high-performance climatic systems, whether mechanical or natural, convective or radiative, with a computational approach based on efficient mathematical models that take into account the different modes of heat exchange (convection, conduction, radiation)
The efficiency of these systems is always considered in terms of the aeraulic and thermal comfort for the users and of the thermal yields of the systems.
