Dear ASHRAE members, colleagues: 

This month we will have our distinguished lecturer, Dr. Kishor Khankari present to us.  We are also cross-promoting this event with the local AIA Chapter.  AIA has been invited to attend this discussion as well.  Given that Dr. Khankari is an AIA and GBCI approved speaker, both architects and engineers will receive continuing education credit for attendance.  Consequently, if you have an architect friend, please invite them.  The rate for an architect will be the same for a member RSVP ticket.  April is Art, Architecture & Design Month.  https://www.aialasvegas.org/page/11

Dr. Kishor Khankari, Ph.D. is President at AnSight LLC in Ann Arbor, MI. He provides engineering solutions and insights through Physics based simulations and CFD analysis. Kishor has several years of experience in providing optimized HVAC solutions to a wide variety of applications involving external wind engineering, plume dispersion, smoke exhaust, displacement ventilation, natural ventilation, radiant heating and cooling, and indoor air quality and thermal comfort optimization for office spaces, patient rooms, operating rooms, cleanrooms, justice facilities, data centers, and warehouses. Dr. Khankari has developed a patented technology of a wind band design of exhaust fan assembly systems. He has developed several easy-to-use analytical software tools which are regularly used by design engineers in a variety companies including those in HVAC industry, critical facilities,
and automotive industries.


A noted expert in his field, he has a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota and has been regularly published in several technical journals and trade magazines. Dr. Khankari is an eloquent speaker and has made more than 75 DL presentations worldwide on topics related to design and optimization of HVAC systems. Dr. Kishor Khankari is a Fellow member of ASHRAE. He is a recipient of ASHRAE Exceptional and Distinguished Service Awards. He is the past President of Detroit ASHRAE Chapter. He is past Chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee TC9.11 Clean Spaces and Research Administration Committee (RAC) at national level. He is currently leading a new ASHRAE Multi Task Group (MTG) on Air Change Rates.

Dr. Khankari will lecture re: Application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for Built Environment (AIA and GBCI approved)
Air is the primary carrier of heat, moisture, and contaminants in and around built environments. Airflow patterns determine the distribution of temperature, contaminant level, and importantly air quality and thermal comfort of occupants. The HVAC design risk due to poor airflow management is often realized after commissioning and occupancy. Sometimes it is too late to mitigate the issues related to poor airflow management. This presentation will show how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can help in identifying such risks at early stages in the design and help optimize the HVAC designs for effective and energy efficient performance. After providing a brief introduction to CFD, this presentation with the help of several case studies will show applications of CFD for a wide variety of scenarios involving displacement ventilation, active and passive chilled beams, airflow patterns in enclosed spaces, radiant heating and cooling, smoke propagation in atria, clean rooms, data centers, patient rooms, laboratories, plume dispersion from cooling towers, and several other similar applications to built environment.
