San Diego Supercomputer Centre - California (USA)
Local climate analysis.
Thermal simulation (EnergyPlus).
Natural displacement ventilation analysis.
The new San Diego supercomputer centre building will make extensive use of exposed thermal mass and external shading with the goal of reducing mechanical cooling energy needs. The proposed climate control system uses hybrid displacement ventilation.
