Building HVAC

Occupant comfort and safety

Building codes and owner expectations are driving innovative new ventilation strategies.
Use simulation to optimize your HVAC system designs.


Reduce risk & win more business

Today HVAC engineers can validate and optimize their designs when submitting bids using CFD simulation. Achieving operational goals by controlling undesired microclimates, thermal comfort, draft rating, and air quality compliance has never been easier. Trends are moving toward more companies adopting airflow studies in-house with a focus on mitigating risk and winning new business.

Building Environment Challenges

Autodesk® CFD gives engineers the ability to see the invisible properties of air moving about a building. Applying this capability to HVAC validation delivers amazing results. With the ability to visualize and analyze microclimates within spaces you can optimize designs with confidence. Using CFD results, you can overcome common building HVAC design challenges.
