Large-eddy simulation of buoyancy-driven natural ventilation in an enclosure with a point heat source.
As Output 1 above, this paper is part of Cook’s CFD benchmarking research. To the author's knowledge, this is the first publication in which the large eddy simulation technique (LES) has been validated for modelling buoyant plumes in naturally ventilated enclosures. The work provided training for Abdalla in this class of airflows. Abdalla was lead author, supervised by Cook. Rees assisted with the mathematical modelling.
