Several parameters impacting airflow and the achievement of defined work
conditions of datacom equipment have been analyzed in an existing data center. First,
the necessary measurements were carried out in order to establish the features of the
center, as well to use them to create the basis of the numerical model of the data
center, via the program package PHOENISC. Simulating the numerical model of the
data center, the temperature field, pressure field and velocities within the data center
were being achieved. The results obtained by the simulations were compared with the
measurements done, showing quite a high concurrence, and thereby confirming the
model and becoming available for further data center analyses. The model includes
several factors influencing the airflow. Analyzing the obtained results from the model
simulations, hints were obtained how to implement changes in the data center, in order
to comply with the recommended work conditions for the datacom equipment, and at
the same time to achieve reduced energy costs.
