HNEI is leading a 3 phase investigation of the application of technologies to enhance comfort and displace traditional mechanical cooling in buildings. The first phase developed Coomputational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) protocols for predicting air flow in the external environment. The second phase develops and validates CFD protocols for air movement within a space and in communication with the exterior. The third phase applies these predictive models against actual application of the technologies, including radiant cooling and induced air movement.
