Although there are still a number of squash arenas that are not air-conditioned or heated; Air conditioning of squash courts has become a trend when design and establishing new squash courts as well as other sporting arena. The current paper numerically investigates the influence of location and number of air conditioning supply and extracts openings on air flow properties in spectators’ area within a squash area. The present work focuses on predicting air flow patterns and thermal behaviour through investigating of the air flow regimes and moisture content inside the spectators’ area. Furthermore, the work investigates the heat transfer behaviour through analysing temperature and relative humidity profiles within the area. Moreover, carbon dioxide dispersion is investigated in order to recommend design features that aid to achieve the thermal comfort environment inside the studied area. The present investigation made use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation techniques as embedded in the commercially available code (FLUENT 6.2).
