Vapour cycle refrigeration is the predominant means of air-conditioning in small - and medium-size business aircraft and helicopters.
V7 Aerospace Cabin Component
Flowmaster V7 Aerospace includes a Cabin Component that has been developed to meet the specific challenges faced when developing vapour cycle systems within this type of small aircraft.
The Cabin Component within V7 Aerospace is designed to enable engineers to simulate small aircraft cabins that use vapour cycle systems, to predict the mean temperature of the cabin air space accounting for temperatures of the fuselage, instrument panel, floor and windscreen.
The Flowmaster V7 Aerospace Cabin Component does not require 3D data and therefore can be used to validate a cabin’s vapour cycle system much earlier in the design cycle - at the concept stage - allowing for multiple parametric studies to be run quickly.
