MacroFlo simulates air flow driven by wind pressure and buoyancy forces (and mechanical air movement if used in conjunction with ApacheHvac).

MacroFlo uses a fast multi-zone thermo-fluid solver to simulate interaction between air flows, pressures and thermal conditions. It models large air volumes and simulates air flow between these, through building elements such as windows and doors.

It enables you to easily define the size of window or door openings and how they will open and close.

It Incorporates models of:

  • external wind pressure based on empirical data
  • stack effect (buoyancy)
  • flow characteristics of cracks
  • flow characteristics of large openings
  • two-way flow
  • resistance due to grilles and wall friction
  • Rayleigh instability

In the MacroFlo video you will learn how to apply this tool to minimise the need for air conditioning in a building, or eliminate it all together.
