Building Energy Simulation Forum: CFD analysis for heat pump water heaters in affordable multifamily housing

Join us on December 13 to learn about the recent computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis of heat pump water heaters conducted for Mahonia Crossing Apartments — an intergenerational housing community in Salem that provides affordable apartments for income-qualified households.

Experts from Interface Engineering and Scott Edwards Architects will share how the results of the CFD analysis shaped the building’s design and occupant comfort while maintaining the owner’s commitment to affordable sustainability. The results include:

  • Information on how heat pump water heater placement within an individual multifamily unit affects system performance and occupant comfort.
  • Design recommendations for unit placement and ducting within walk-up multifamily buildings.
  • Considerations and assumptions for approaching a heat pump water heater CFD analysis.
