Cooling Tower

The hot saturated air (plume) emitted from the discharge side of a cooling tower may be partially driven towards it’s inlet due to the prevailing flow dynamics around the cooling tower.
Such a phenomenon is called re-circulation of plume. Such a phenomenon increases the wet bulb temperature of the inlet air and considerably decreases its cooling capacity.
Through CFD the dynamics of airflow around a cooling tower can be simulated to check any amount re-circulation and corrective measures can be taken in the design stage.
