Several parameters impacting airflow and the achievement of defined work conditions of datacom equipment have been analyzed in an existing data center. First, the necessary measurements were carried out inorder to establish the features of the center, as well to use them to create the basis of the numerical model of the data center, via the program package PHOENISC. Simulating the numerical model of the data center, the temperature field, pressure field and velocities within the data center were being achieved. The results obtained by the simulations were compared with the measurements done, showing quite a high concurrence, and thereby confirming the model and becoming available for further data center analyses. The model includes several factors influencing the airflow. Analyzing the obtained results from the model simulations, hints were obtained how to implement changes in the data center, in order to comply with the recommended work conditions for the datacom equipment, and at the same time to achieve reduced energy costs.
