Leaking in two ways
« on: February 04, 2019, 07:55:03 am »

Hello, i want to simulate a stairwell pressurization system, but when i ran some examples models the simulation or 2D slices shows leaking in only one direction. So theres the question: can i configure the program to leak in both ways by the pressure on the room? how ?
thanks in advance!

If you are using HVAC localized leakage, then the flow is unidirectional. If, for example, you want flow out the top of a vertical door gap  and in the bottom, then you have to create two leakage pathways and stack one on top of the other.
