|Abstract: ||An alternative to using numerical simulation to
model ventilation performance is to model internal
air flows using water-based experimental models.
However, these can be time consuming and the
manual nature of model assembly means that
exploring detail and design variations is often
prohibitively expensive. Additive, or Rapid
manufacturing processes can build physical models
directly from 3D-CAD data and is widely used in
product development within the aero-automotive and
consumer goods industries. This paper describes
ongoing work exploring the application of such
techniques for the production of physical models
which can be used in their own right in water-based
testing or for Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
validation. The findings presented here suggest such
techniques present a worthwhile alternative to
traditional model fabrication methods.|
