What I am doing is HVAC related. Presently there are a number of calculations where you can calculate a capture distance for an extraction system welding hood based upon quantitative measurements taken on site: (Equation 1) ɑ=(x/√A)*(W/L)^-β (Equation 2) β=0.2*(x/√A)^-1 (Equation 3) Vh=Vc(0.93+8.58a²) I can do Equations 1-3 fine but what I’m trying to find out what the capture distance would be based upon limited information that I would have at the design stage. I’ve got as far as rearranging the equations: (Equation 1a) x=a*√A*(W/L)^β (Equation 2a) β=0.2*(x/√A)^-1 (Equation 3a) a = (√100Vh-93Vc)/( √858*√Vc) Key x is the distance the hood is positioned from the process (m) W Width of the hood face (m) L Length of hood face (m) A Area of the hood face (m2) α Distance from the hood face for satisfactory capture (m) β Beta Vh Hood entry velocity (m/s) Vc Hood capture velocity (m/s) I’ve been doing the maths both ways to check that the answers tally and they do not. It maybe because it’s stressing me out but I just can’t see how to move forward. For small circular hoods the answers are near enough. However, for large rectangles/slots say 300x1000mm and above, the maths is miles out. It is equations 1a & 2a I’m particularly stuck with as I don’t know how to calculate the value of β Beta? Appreciate any help.xxxx
