ALVES DAMASCENO, Flávio et al. COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) AND IT´S USE FOR ANALYSIS OF GAS DISTRIBUTION INSIDE ANIMAL PRODUCTION FACILITIES:: A LITERATURE REVIEW. rev.udcaactual.divulg.cient. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.2, pp.83-93. ISSN 0123-4226.

Currently, one of the most discussed subjects in commercial livestock production is the emission of gases and temperature distribution, associated to climate change and animal welfare, principally with gas as methane (CH4) and ammonia (NH3). Application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for predicting the occurrence of these gases, especially in the animal production sector, is becoming increasingly important. Along the years, the versatility, precision and ease of use offered by CFD has caused its greater acceptance by the agricultural and animal engineering community. Therefore, CFD is regularly utilized to solve environmental problems associated to climate control in commercial animal production installations. Due to a better combination between computational simulation in CFD and mathematical modeling, realism of these simulations has become more reliable in recent years. Based on these facts, the goal of this study was to showed the recent studies using commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to determinate the behavior and distributions of gases inside animal production installations, showing the advantages and limitations of the technique.

Palavras-chave : Computational models; mass and energy balance; animal production installation.
