Abstract:

For the phenomenon of vortex and gas escape in the flow field of the extant fume hood, the computational fluid dynamics method was used for simulation. This research changed the shape parameters of the underside structure of the fume hood window, used circular arc baffles with different radii, elliptical arc baffles with different lengths, and added deflectors with different radii. Then this research studied the influence of structural changes on the flow field in the fume hood by analyzing the size and location of the vortex to obtain the direction of structural optimization. The results showed that when the height of the underside baffle was low and the length was short, there was obvious large vortex in the center position of the fume hood and near the wall. A baffle with a height greater than 50 mm and a length greater than 90 mm could significantly reduce the vortex at the center of the fume hood and at the junction of the baffle and the side wall. Adding a deflector could optimize the flow field and make the center vortex disappear, and the radius of the deflector should not be greater than 70 mm, otherwise obvious vortices would be excited on the outside and end of the baffle, which provides a basis for the rational design of fume hoods.
