Airflow Patterns in Healthcare Facilities book
This chapter is devoted to numerically investigating the optimum designs of various applications (devices and equipment) inside the different types of hospitals to obtain optimum energy utilization with the aid of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques. Governing equations of mass, momentum, energy, and species are solved numerically to predict the airflow patterns and thermal behavior in operating theaters and healthcare facilities. This chapter is divided into several sections concerned with specific recommendations that should be followed for each application to achieve efficient energy utilization and indoor air quality.
