This paper outlines how airflow modeling or CFD can be used to predict exactly how a cleanroom will perform given a certain set of conditions. To a large extent, these techniques, dispense with historical calculations and allow each new design to be treated as just that without having to rely entirely on experiences from the past or mock-ups of the space being designed. This paper gives some background to airflow modeling and describes some case studies of where it has been applied in cleanroom and isolator design.
