CFD analysis of the effect of pressure gradients on the separation efficiency of a generic air curtain

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The aim of this study is to evaluate the performance of a generic air curtain configuration when it is exposed to cross-jet forces derived from systematic variations in environmental conditions, namely pressure gradients between the indoor and outdoor environments. The analysis is performed based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations on verified computational grids and validated with water-tank experiments and field measurements.
