Meeting Title: Stratified Air Ventilation System
Meeting Details:

January Program: Stratified Air Ventilation Systems

AIA Approved | 1 LU | HPO311


Stratification CFD Model

Displacement ventilation systems which are also referred as “stratified air distribution systems” work on the principle of thermal buoyancy – hot air due to lower density rises above the cold air. Stratified distribution systems are becoming popular due to their ability to provide better indoor air quality with low energy demand. Stratified air distribution systems come mainly in two flavors – traditional displacement ventilation (TDV) systems and the under floor air distribution (UFAD) systems. This presentation will cover the basics of stratified air distribution systems and discuss various design and operational parameters that affect their performance.
