Simulation of special vehicle

This project was done in collaboration with VOZ CZ, s.p.

The main objective of this project was numerical simulation of HVAC of a special vehicle. The commercial FE package ANSYS was used to perform this simulation. Effects of air flow around the vehicle, heat transfer trough vehicle walls as well as flow inside of the vehicle were taken into account. Special attention was paid to mesh quality especially near the walls. Flow inside the vehicle was treated as turbulent and k – ԑ turbulent model was used. The results obtained from numerical simulation were compared with experimental data.
