Original Abstract

The thermal comfort of passengers in the aircraft first class suite using comfort zones model (according to standard ISO 14505-2) was performed and the CFD method was employed. Several different positions of personal inlets and flow rates were tested. The study was performed in the section of the Airbus A380 aircraft lining with 4 seats occupied by passive manikins. Manikins' boundary conditions were equal to the ISO 14505 summer comfort zones diagram. The study shows specifics of implementation of comfort zones model in CFD and predicts which combination of inlets are feasible for personalised ventilation in aircraft cabin. The main goal of the study was reach the overall and local thermal comfort in combination with personalised ventilation. All models and simulations were performed under commercial CFD code Star-CCM+.
