Airflow characteristics in ventilated and air-conditioned spaces play an important role to attain comfort and hygiene conditions. This paper utilizes a 3D time-dependent Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model to assess the airflow characteristics in different air-conditioned spaces. It is found that the optimum airside design system can be attained, if the airflow is directed to pass all the enclosure areas before the extraction. Still most of these factors and evaluation indices have the shortage of adequately describe the influence of the recirculation zones on the occupancy zone and also on the fresh supplied air. The model of evaluation should assess the airflow characteristics in any enclosure according to its position in the enclosure and the expected target of it along its pass to the extraction.
