Original Abstract

Numerical study of personalised ventilation inlets in the aircraft first class suite using CFD methods was performed. Seven different positions and several inlet rates were tested. The effectiveness of the scenarios was evaluated employing thermal comfort zones model, age-of-air scalar and draft risk. The study was performed in the section of the aircraft lining with 4 seats with passive manikins.The study shows, that a combination of two inlets is needed to overcome the non uniformity of the flow pattern from the main ventilation system for different suites.The flow situation in the suits is different to the bussiness or travel class seats and so is the solution to the fresh air delivery and personalised thermal comfort regulation. In the frame of the study two softwares were tested to evaluate the differences between the commercial CFD code (Star-CCM+) compared to the open source solution (based on ICON FOAMpro).
