Abstract

The paper describes results from a comparison between in-flight measurements and CFD-simulations of the air flow in an aircraft cabin. Furthermore, a comparison is made between simulation results for the same configuration as calculated by different CFD-codes and different users. The results indicate a good (qualitative) agreement between the measured and simulated flow field. The heat balance however was not in such good agreement. The comparison between the different codes showed good quantitative agreement.
