Pull-push ventilation system, with high capture efficiency, is universally used to capture contaminants from containment generation where can’t be enclosed and where the working area is large. When there are obstacles between the pull hood and the push hood, the air jet will disperse, leaving contaminants out of control, causing atmosphere polluted. This paper aims to discuss flow filed of pull-push ventilation system, located in some tank of some plating workshop, with obstacles between pull hood and push hood. Mathematical model, involving physical model, assumptions, governing equations, boundary conditions and grid separation is established. By CFD code FLUENT, flow field, containing velocity field and concentration field, is achieved. To verify the simulation models, velocity field for simulation results is compared with the theory results, while concentration field for simulation results with experimental results. The comparison results show that the results matches well and that mathematical model proposed in this paper is reasonable, helpful and realistic significant in designing this kind exhaust ventilation systems where obstacles presence.
