A reliable approximation of thermal comfort parameters requires accurate numerical representation of all of these physical phenomena.
This can be achieved by utilizing strongly coupled solution of radiation, conduction and thermal fluid dynamics.
The use of a Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) package reduces the design time of a cabin comfort system, as well as provides highly robust and validated analysis of the system, removing costly repeated prototyping and improving cabin comfort at the same time.
STAR-CCM+ is a fully integrated CAE software solution which imbeds modules for all aspects of Thermal Comfort Modeling.
In addition to the aspects above, STAR-CCM+ is the world’s premier Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation software, providing the fastest, most automatic CAD-to-post-processing package for all simulation needs, including TCM applications.
