ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the application of thermal displacement ventilation (TDV) in several classroom configurations at school districts in Southern California. It highlights the use of computational-fluid-dynamics (CFD) software in simulating the use of TDV by AECOM Ltd., a global provider of professional technical and management support services. It also explores the benefits of using TDV which include reducing energy consumption.
