Description

Description

With IT manufacturers improving the performance of datacom equipment year after year, the need for accurate design of data centers has become crucial for ensuring safe and efficient design of data centers. Based on the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) publication for case studies on high-density data centers, this class examines some of the most common ventilation strategies employed in existing data centers to understand how to model and set up these data centers for analysis with Autodesk Simulation CFD software and how to validate the results with actual published data. This class will also look at some of the best practices based on the ASHRAE publication and will help designers, engineers, and project managers gain more insight into the design and operation of data centers.
