Computer simulation is based on mathematical models developed mostly from theoretical science and helps for studying and prediction of the behavior of engineered systems. The advantages of computer simulation are the ease of varying the desired parameters to investigate various possible design scenarios, explore new theories, and design new experiments to test these theories. It also provides detailed information and serves as a powerful alternative to experimental science and observation when phenomena are not observable or when measurements are impractical or too expensive. This seminar presents the different types of mechanistic modeling approaches employed for studying airflow and pollutant transport in indoor and built environment. Two approaches: microscopic (single zone, multi-zone and zonal models) and macroscopic, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), are discussed. Related application examples such as natural ventilation and pollutant transport in road way tunnel (using single-zone model and CFD) and indoor airflow (using zonal approach) are presented.
