Heat, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning

Passenger comfort plays an important role in today’s aircraft design. Heat, ventilation and air-conditioning systems are often optimized using numerical simulation, e.g. CFD for cabin flow. These simulations are quite complex, as natural and enforced  convection as well as radiation have to be taken into account. Additionally, the turbulent characteristics of these types of flow often require the use of large eddy simulation (LES).
