Title: Modelling the effect of human presence in a single room with computational fluid dynamics simulation-a short review
Issue Date: 2018
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to contribute with a short review to the development of a numerical model that reflects the needs of ventilating a space due to the number of its workers and their working period. The 3D model aim is to consider a better wellness satisfaction and productivity for workers, guaranteeing thermal comfort, optimizing the energetic efficiency of a room for better indoor air quality by addressing the minimum ventilation rates proposed. Through detailed analysis and different researching criteria, 24 experimental articles were included. All articles have a validated model that is significant to study the interaction between human presence in a single room with CFD methodology, which can be hopeful for humans to create a more comfortable, health living environment and to help parametrizing a 3D CFD model in the future.
