Commercial building in Denmark

During the design of a building that has as destination offices and chemical laboratories to be realised in Denmark the problem addressed was to evaluate the conditions of comfort of the occupants and the appropriate dissemination air, in particular in the central atrium of the open building on several floors and equipped with a transparent cover to ensure a good natural illumination. The CFD analysis allowed to assess different options and optimise the sizing of the plant so as to ensure optimal conditions of temperature and internal air speed. In particular, there were evaluated the benefits and disadvantages of the making use of the natural daylight only and night ventilation in the summer period and the integration of mechanical ventilation, evaluating the positioning and number of openings and / or injection nozzles.
