    Title: Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamcs for the Built Environment

    GBCI Approved | 1 CE Hour | 0920014282

    AIA Approved|1LU| KHANKARI01

    Speaker: Kishor Khankair, PhD, Fellow ASHRAE


    Presentation Summary

    Air is the primary carrier of heat, moisture, and contaminants in and around built environments. Airflow patterns determine the distribution of temperature, contaminant level, and importantly air quality and thermal comfort of occupants. System level HVAC designs cannot envision the potential risks due to poor airflow distribution. Such risks are realized only after commissioning and occupancy of the buildings. This presentation will show how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can help in identification and mitigation of such risks at early stages in the design. After providing a brief introduction to CFD, this presentation with the help of several case studies will show application of CFD to a wide variety of scenarios involving displacement ventilation, active and passive chilled beams, airflow patterns in enclosed spaces, radiant heating and cooling, smoke propagation in atria, clean rooms, data centers, patient rooms, plume dispersion from cooling towers, and several other situations related to built environment.

    Speaker Bio

    Dr. Kishor Khankari, Ph.D. is President at AnSight LLC in Ann Arbor, MI. He provides engineering solutions and insights through Physics based simulations and analyses. Kishor has several years of experience in providing optimized HVAC solutions to a wide variety of applications involving external wind engineering, plume dispersion, smoke exhaust, displacement ventilation, natural ventilation, radiant heating and cooling, and indoor air quality and thermal comfort optimization for office spaces, patient rooms, operating rooms, cleanrooms, justice facilities, data centers, and warehouses. Dr. Khankari has developed a patented technology of a wind band design of exhaust fan assembly systems. He has developed several easy-to-use analytical software tools which are regularly used by design engineers in a variety companies including those in HVAC industry, critical facilities, and automotive industries. 

    A noted expert in his field, he has a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota and has been regularly published in several technical journals and trade magazines. Dr. Khankari is an eloquent speaker and has made several presentations worldwide on topics related to design and optimization of HVAC systems at various technical conferences and professional meetings. 


    Dr. Kishor Khankari is a Fellow member of ASHRAE. He is a recipient of ASHRAE Exceptional and Distinguished Service Awards. He is the past President of Detroit ASHRAE Chapter. He is past Chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee TC9.11 Clean Spaces and Chair of Research Administration Committee (RAC) at national level. He is currently leading a new ASHRAE Multi Task Group (MTG) on Air Change Rates.

    Distinguished Lecturer Program

    The purpose of the ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturers (DL) Program is to provide ASHRAE Chapters with lecturers equipped to speak on relevant subjects of interest to ASHRAE members and guests without incurring huge costs by covering travel expenses to and from the host city. Distinguished Lecturers are nominated by ASHRAE members and presentations are evaluated. The Distinguished Lecturer Program is supervised by the Chapter Technology Transfer Committee. For the 2018-19 Society Year, 195 visits are allocated to the 15 ASHRAE Regions. The CTTC Regional Vice Chair for each Region allocates visits to the Chapters.

    Title: The Coming of Age of Smart Grid and Smart Buildings

    Speaker: Thomas Lawrence, PhD

    Presentation

    GBCI Approved | 1 CE Hour | 0920014297

    AIA Approved | 1 LU/HSW | LAWRENCE01

    The smart grid is coming and in that future era buildings will be interacting even more with the electric utilities.  The communication will be in both directions, with the utility working to balance the grid supply and demand through methods such as signaling requests for demand response measures, real-time price adjustments, etc.  This is a new and evolving field and, while there are some differences in the need for and how a smart grid might function in the various regions of the world, there are some common factors as well.  This seminar provides an overview of the smart grid particularly as it relates to buildings and their systems.

He spent the first 18 years in industry and after going back for his PhD at Purdue he has been at UGA since January 2004. He is the past chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee 2.8 and is a member of the committee that wrote and maintains ASHRAE Standard 189.1 for High Performance Green Buildings. As an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, he gives seminars on green building design at venues around the world. Dr. Lawrence was named an ASHRAE Fellow in 2016 and is a Director-at-Large on the Board of Directors for ASHRAE.
