The correct description of air diffusers plays a crucial role in the CFD predictions of the airflow pattern into a room. The numerical simulation of air distribution in an indoor space is challenging because of the complicated airflow pattern generated. An experimental study has been carried out in a full scale test room, 4.10 m (length), 3.20 m (width), and 2.70 m (height), in order to take velocity measurements of the airflow pattern generated by three different air diffusers: displacement, mixing and a low impulse diffuser. Smoke visualization has been developed to determine the direction of the flow and observe the developed region of the jets. During the experiments the cold air is supplied at a temperature of 16ºC. The air exchange rate is set to 5.6 h-1.
