Abstract (Swedish)
In this study, the results from simulations of two sets of a 1/2 scale ISO room (ISO 9705) experiments are presented. In the experiments, heptane in a tray was burned in the middle of the room. Five models with various levels of complexity and geometric detail are used.
The comparisons between simulations and experiments show that the fourth model provides the most accurate results with deviation of 7.5%. In this model, the hood, air supplier, and platform are included and the model has finer details than the other simulations. On the other hand, the largest deviation between the numerical results and the experiments were found in the second mode and it should be considered as an example of a not perfect choice.
