A commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software package is used to investigate numerically a 3-dimensional rectangular-box room with rounded edges. The room has all its window openings located on one wall only. The standard K-ε turbulence model is used. Air's flow rate and flow pattern are considered in terms of wind speed and the openings' characteristics, such as their number, location, size and shape. Especially, comparison with ventilation rate corresponding to when the room edges are sharp is made; and thereby the effects of the edges being rounded are examined. Copyright © 2013 by ASME.
