Abstract

OSORIO SARAZ, JAIRO ALEXANDER et al. A REVIEW ABOUT THE USE OF COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) IN BROILER HOUSE. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2012, vol.79, n.175, pp.142-149. ISSN 0012-7353.

The modern poultry industry has been undergone to strict international requirements to ensure the welfare of animals and people, while seeking continuous improvement of its production and maintenance of their competitiveness. For this, the broilers facilities should be designed in such a way that affords the best conditions of thermal comfort in both winter and summer. Thus, mathematical modeling has been an interesting tool in the definition and understanding of projects of thermal analysis for environment compatible with industrial aviculture in Brazil, making the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to be highly recommended. The aim of this work was to elaborate the state of art of the applicability of CFD in environment of broilers facilities and their current limitations. It starts from the assumption that from CFD models it is possible to acquire knowledge of the distributions of velocity, air temperature, gases and particulate matter, when facilities are subjected to natural ventilation, mechanical ventilation and adiabatic evaporative cooling systems.

Keywords : Computational models; animal environment; ventilation systems; poultry production.
