As an assignment for Deerns Raadgevende Ingenieurs, Actiflow simulated new ventilation system concepts for the Ahoy event hall in Rotterdam.
As part of the renovation of the Ahoy event hall, a new ventilation system had to be designed. In a first phase, several system concepts were determined by the Deerns engineers. Then, Actiflow simulated the different concepts through CFD. The main goal of the study was to compare the different concepts by determining the temperature distribution and the flow behaviour inside the event hall due to the different ventilation concepts. Based on the CFD results, Deerns determined the final ventilation system design.
