The validity of numerical methods in predicting conditions within a close temperature control application (20±0.1°C) by virtue of comparison with measured results from a full-architectural mock-up. The application was found to be innately sensitive to small changes which was the main challenge to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling. In order for this tool to continue being useful it has to be able to cope with demanding scenario’s such as this.
