Jet Fan Orientation
« on: May 11, 2017, 11:05:10 am »

I'm currently modeling fires in tunnels and would like to know if it is possible to have the output of the jet fan to be at an angle. Just to give a little context, the tunnel is along the X axis and its face in the the y z plane. What I would like is to have the jet fan output to be at an angle in the y x plane or in the x z plane. If someone could either give me steps to follow in order to accomplish this or point me in the correct direction it would be greatly appreciated.

From the Pyrosim Manual:

HVAC Vents
HVAC Vents are used to represent the junction between the HVAC system and the rest of the
computational model. See Chapter 8 for more information on using vents. To define an HVAC Vent:
1. On the Model menu, click New Vent.
2. In the Surface box, select HVAC.
3. Click the Geometry tab. Specify the appropriate 2D geometry of the vent.
4. Click the HVAC Properties tab. If you want the flow from the vent to go in a direction not
perpendicular to the vent, click Louver. Specify the values X, Y, and Z as a vector of the direction
you would like the flow to be directed.
5. Click OK.
