The issue of thermal comfort in passenger cabins, such as those found in planes, trains, buses, and cars is a challenging one for HVAC designers. There are many factors that the HVAC designer needs to account for, including the external conditions to which the vehicle is exposed, the necessity to address both micro and macro environments within the space, and differing occupancy levels (and thereby heat loads) during operation.

This presentation demonstrates the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the prediction of thermal comfort within passenger cabins, how the conditions can be improved within the space, and how the consideration of factors such as glazing type and supply flow rate can lead to energy savings.
