Analysis of Jet Fan Ventilation System installed in an Underground Car Park with Partition Walls
The jet fan ventilation system is one of various ventilation systems available for the purpose of carbon monoxide extraction in underground car parks. Such a system is dependent not only on the rules applied during the design, but also the architecture of the underground car park. This paper describes a numerical model used to analyse air stagnation areas, airflow and streamline patterns and the influence of partition walls on the jet fan ventilation system. Additional focus is on the validity of the choice of the jet fan ventilation system for the underground car parks with partition walls. Results show that jet fan ventilation system is not suitable for all underground car park architecture layouts.
