Computational Fluid Dynamics 

 

Our Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Service provides detailed information that will enable you to proactively manage your data center / server room cooling infrastructure and IT deployment.

 

As power and heat loads rise in the data center, more companies are experiencing “hot spots” where cooled air is not reaching servers. One tool to address this problem is an analysis with software using data center CFD modeling to simulate the airflow through a facility. Electronic Environments will use this software to create a model of your data center and generate 3D graphics to identify airflow problems that can lead to overheated servers. The image below shows a 3D model of the thermal map along the height of the server room.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Features and Benefits of Data Center Computation Fluid Dynamics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Level One - provides a basic CFD model that illustrates supply and return airflow in the data center / server room and calibrated to actual airflow, rack power*, and temperature measurements* This may require electrical panel reading by a licensed electrician

  • Level Two - provides a calbrated data center CFD model, CRAC failure analysis plus scenario analysis (IT deployment or infrastructure change

 

Data center CFD model accuracy is dependent upon actual load reading from power distribution panels to the rack level. If these readings are not available, Electronic Environments' data center experts can perform branch circuit reading and circuit tracing as part of this service. Additional Data Center Assessment services can be added to configure a service package that suits your budget and business needs:

 

  • CAD floor plan

  • Electrical infrastructure thermography (infrared thermal imaging)

  • Electrical distribution circuit tracing

  • Critical electrical infrastructure one line diagram

  • Single point of failure analysis

  • Generator load bank testing

  • Power quality analysis
