Modeling of Indoor Air Flow Distribution in a Natural Cross-ventilated Kitchen


Sapkota BP, Uprety KN and Gokhale S

Most of rural population in developing countries depends on the biomass energy for cooking and heating purposes. Women in this sector spend large part of their daily time in the kitchen cooking the food and suffering from the contaminants emitted from the biomass cook stoves. This study focuses on the numerical modeling of indoor air pollutant in a single room Nepali kitchen by solving the Navier-Stokes equations to analyze velocity profile and temperature distribution throughout different sections of the kitchen to depicted the pollutant paths. The study explored the fluid flow profile, temperature profile based on the changing parameters such as inlet velocity, number and position of ventilation proper positioning of the ventilation to minimize the effect of pollutant to the person working in the kitchen.
