I have recently come accross design questions that require the use of CFD:
- air movement inside an entrance hall + possible air transfer from the restaurant,
- air movement in terrace gardens and ground floor vegetated areas.
I’d like to get some information before getting started.
Software selection: Butterfly?
My preferred choice would be Butterfly. Based on what people have managed to accomplish since the release, I’m quite confident that it can meet expectations. I’d like to know more about how Butterfly compares with other commercial softwares, such as Autodesk CFD and Fluent, to confirm this choice. Are there some pros/cons lists somewhere?
Technical requirements: any recommandation?
As I dive deeper into the subject, I’ve become aware of the technical requirements to perform efficient CFD studies, that go above what remains of my Master’s. Would you have some material or online classes to recommend to get a better understanding of these issues ?
Thanks in advance,
