perforated floor
« on: January 28, 2015, 06:04:26 am »

Hi every one.
I wonder if some one can help me with a tool to be used in making a perforated floor..
I am simulating a data server and need to simulate air distribution through raised floor.

Hi,

I would create an HVAC element such that the vents extended over the top and bottom of the floor. You would have to figure out the appropriate area of the vent to approximate the air flow through the perforated floor.

Moving from the upper surface of the floor to the underside of the floor you would need the following.

vent
node
duct
node
vent
