Video: Why Consider Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Before Data Center Construction Begins
April 26, 2018
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used for many data center applications, for example, to model airflow through a data center cabinet. To model airflow across an entire data center, and demonstrate a positive impact, is more complex. When CFD is used, especially before any timely or costly construction begins, it can help to validate and justify making design changes to a planned or legacy data center.
As part of Chatsworth Products (CPI) commitment to delight our customers with our products and support, we're proud to offer this highly-advanced consultation and analysis at no cost to you. Something many other IT infrastructure support companies don't provide. As part of this service, you'll have access to a panel of onsite consultants, field application engineers and technical experts who provide a rigorous checklist of your installation's existing and planned airflow, equipment placement, and also take into account the following factors:
- Shape and size of your data center
- Raised floor and ceiling heights
- Location and type of CRAC units
- Location and open area perforated tiles, cut-outs and under-floor obstructions
Once all of these elements have been captured and recorded, CPI's CFD modeling will assist in creating an optimized installation based on better airflow, maximized network equipment performance and elimination of wasteful power usage and cooling techniques.
