I have the following problem,
I want a CFD simulation of the following.

It concerns a building in a greenhouse, in order to make it clear that it is for a building as a whole is placed in a greenhouse.

air inlet takes place in the space between the glass and the building through vents in the floor. the air through vents in the wall of the building is drawn into the building.

I want to simulate the airflow in the space between the glass and the building, with the temeperaturen and the influences of the sun.

I would like to know how I can best set this up CFD 2012.

 

To get a idea of the building see the attacment.

Mark,

  What I would suggest is to take a look at our analysis guidelines (found in the Help System).

From our tutorials, what you are looking to do is mix the details of our Solar Radiation example model with our Natural Convection model.

If you step through those they will give you the basics of what you are trying to do.
