Abstract: This paper presents the results of a case study on the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations for assessment of ventilation systems. The case study concerns an office space in Austria equipped with combined Displacement Ventilation (DV) and Personalized Ventilation (PV). Monitored data provide a basis to document the indoor conditions and user behavior. Calibrated CFD-based air flow simulations were performed to support a better understanding of the airflow phenomena as well as modelling different design alternatives. Moreover, the implications of alternative design configurations for indoor environmental variables could be computationally investigated.
