Study of Air Conditioner Location in a Office Space

The CFD (computational fluid dynamics) uses numerical methods to solve the partial differential equations which governs any type of flow. Therefore we can use CFD tool to investigate the behavior of a fluid flow or a heat flow. In the current study, it is shown that the CFD tool can be effectively used to investigate the proper location for your air conditioner at home or at office. If you have a very good air conditioned system, but if it is not installed at proper location, then it will not give you a uniform temperature distribution. Therefore it is necessary to identify the best location to install you air conditioned system. The current study deals with three cases to showcase how effectively CFD tool can be used to optimize the location of your air conditioned system to get the proper air and heat flow
