Real-Time Indoor Airflow Visualization for Sustainable Architectural Design
Currently, methods to analyze indoor airflow are restricted to an engineering point of view. These methods are often time consuming and very specialized. This research examines how virtual reality can play a role in architectural visualization and interior design by visualizing indoor airflow in a residential setting. A study was conducted in which users experienced an interactive visualization to determine if virtual reality aided their understanding of airflow in a given room. Suggestions were then offered on how this research could be expanded and incorporated into interior design to improve the airflow quality of indoor environments.
