Air conditioning systems are seen as a crucial part of any structure because they are directly related to the comfort of the occupants. Finding a conditioning system that exhibits not only a high level of comfort, but also a decrease in energy consumption and cost of the system is now very much preferable, especially with the ever-increasing cost of energy. Mixed convection for different boundary conditions and different configuration is carried out. In addition, a flow is injected through a window and extracted through an opposite window. In this work we examine the influence of the value of the Rayleigh number on the flow structure. The numerical analysis was carried out using the ‘Fluent’ software. To deal with turbulence the RNG k-ε model was adopted in this study. The study of ventilation efficiency has shown that the intensity of the recirculation flow increases near the adiabatic wall with the increase of Rayleigh number.
Key words: Energy consumption / mixed convection / ventilation efficiency
