An environmental chamber has been used to compare the effectiveness of mixing and displacement ventilation in terms of heat and contaminant removal. Results are presented for CFD simulations of the air movement in the chamber and for measurements using a heated mannequin with displacement ventilation. The CFD simulations and the measurements suggest that displacement ventilation is more energy efficient than a mixing system.
