Data Center Thermal Modeling Using CFD

Applied Math Modeling CEO Paul Bemis demonstrates how to use his company's CoolSim software to create a 3D model of your data center airflow using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

As power and heat loads rise in the data center, more companies are experiencing "hot spots" where cooled air is not reaching servers. One tool to address this problem is an analysis with software using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to simulate the air flow through a facility. In this video, Applied Math Modeling CEO Paul Bemis demonstrates how to use his company's CoolSim software to create a model of your data center and generate 3D graphics to identify airflow problems that can lead to overheated servers. This demo was filmed at the recent AFCOM Data Center World Expo, and runs about 9 minutes.
