With SimScalehowever, all can be done from a web browser. The first one being the shape of the ductwork. Paul Evans - Mar 21, 0.

### Ductwork sizing, calculation and design for efficiency - The Engineering Mindset

Then we find the area ratio using the hfac diameter out squared divided by diameter in squared. Just add in the letters to separate rows then declare what type of fitting or duct that corresponds to. For A to I we lose For the main duct G we just sum branches L and I.

If we now focus on the optimised design on the right, we see the fittings used follow a much smoother profile with no sudden obstructions, recirculation or backflow which significantly improves the air flow rate within the system.

We find it easily by adding up all the pressure losses from the start to the exit of each branch. Now we want to make a table with the rows labelled as per the example. We can calculate how much pressure drop each damper needs to provide simply by subtracting the loss of the run from the index run. How to design a duct system. You can easily calculate the hours between two dates and times in excel.

We can start to fill some of the data in, we can first include the volume flow rates for each of the branches, this is easy as its just the volume flow rate for the room which it serves.

One is made from standard galvanised steel the other from fibreglass, the pressure drop over udct 10m distance for this example, is around 11 Pa for the dut steel hvacc 16 Pa for the Fibreglass. The high velocity in the main duct which is caused by the sharp turns and sudden bends, reduces the flow into the 3 branches on the left.

They also offer free webinars, courses and tutorials to help you set up and run your own simulations. Link 1 and Link 2. Do that for all the ducts and branches on the table. Please enter your comment!

## Duct System Design Basics

Dut assume you're ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish. We take the chart and scroll up from the bottom left until we hit the volume flow rate of 0.

For example use long radius bends rather than right angles as the sudden change in direction wastes a huge amount of energy. Cooling Load Calculation for cold rooms. duc

We know all the values for this so we desiign calculate the mass flow rate how many kilograms per second of air needs to enter the room. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Building services engineering is the design, installation and maintenance of almost every mechanical or electrical aspect within a designn.

Just to note that we will use a cp of 1. This allows the air to smoothly change direction and thus there is no sudden increase in static pressure and the air flow rate to the rooms has dramatically increased. The second thing to consider is the material being used for the ducts, and the roughness of this material as this causes friction.

We start sizing from the first main duct which is section A. Plate Heat Exchanger Applications. Building heating and cooling loads.

We want to use the smoothest fittings possible for energy efficiency. We drop the values in to get the answer of 0.
