A three layered framework for annual indoor airflow CFD simulation (Part II)

Yue Wang, Ali Malkawi, Yun Kyu Yi, Ning Feng

Abstract: In (Yue Wang, 2012) a three layered framework to optimize CFD to cover annual hourly simulation is proposed. The framework contains the mathematical layer, the model layer, and the application layer. Many of the literature related to GPGPU optimization to speed up the mathematical layer was reviewed based on the framework. In this literature review, the fast fluid simulation algorithm will be employed in the second layer. It can be seen from the review that some techniques can dramatically improve the performance of the second layers; however, a good method has not been found yet for the third layer, which requires more work in the future. It is expected that the annual simulation with this method will use a similar simulation time compared to the traditional two or three extreme cases.
