A 3-D full Navier-Stokes simulation of a large scale computing facility at NASA Ames Research center was carried out to assess the adequacy of the existing air handling and conditioning system. The flow simulation of this modern facility was modeled with a viscous, compressible flow solver code OVERFLOW-2 with low Mach number pre-conditioning. A script was created to automate geometry modeling, grid generation, and flow solver input preparation. A new set of air-conditioning boundary conditions was developed and added to the flow solver. Detailed flow visualization was performed to show temperature distribution, air-flow streamlines and velocities in the computer room.
