[Equest-users] e-QUEST and Passive Evaporative Cooling Towers

I'm not sure I quite understand what you are looking for here.
When you say passive evaporative cooling towers - are you thinking of downdraught chimneys? In which case I'm pretty sure eQUEST cannot model it and there's probably to credible workaround for it either.
Also - are you looking to model all three simultaneously (No active cooling, but with passive cooling & natural ventilation) or in separate runs?

Subject: [Equest-users] e-QUEST and Passive Evaporative Cooling Towers

Hi all,

I am relatively new to e-QUEST, but was considering using it for my thesis. I am working on Passive Evaporative Cooling Towers. I was thinking of taking a building prototype (office building) and running an e-QUEST simulation

1.      Building with NO active cooling

2.       Building with Passive Evaporative Cooling ( from the cooling  tower)

3.       Building with natural ventilation ( possibility)

My questions are:

1.      I know e-QUEST has Evaporative Cooling, but can it be in a passive way?

2.       I was thinking of combing the UFAD as a distribution system for the cool air that comes out of the cooling tower, so does e-QUEST deal with UFAD?

I'm still in the planning stage of my thesis, so if anyone has ideas or suggestions for a better way of going forward with this, I'm open to them. All your tips will be very appreciated,

Thanks in advance,
