Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Analysis

Why Run a CFD Analysis?

The primary purpose for running a CFD is to better utilize your current cooling capacity. The focus is to cool the equipment at the rack level, not the room level. Most cooling systems account for 37% of the total power consumed in the data center. By using your current capacity more efficiently, you can better control and reduce the cost of cooling and improve equipment reliability.
