The air swirl diffusers are popular for the ceiling level air supply system and have been widely used for Indoor Air Quality. They are nowadays one of the most popular diffusers commonly used in airconditioning systems [1, 2]. The swirl diffusers are intended to use in low- and medium-pressure ventilation systems. They allow for obtaining the swirl airflow and are especially recommended to use in spaces with the height from 3m up to 12m, where heating and cooling is performed by the ventilation system and where the exact setting of supply air velocity is important [3-6]. In the case of swirl diffusers,fluid flow is usually significantly influenced by the characteristics of different diffuser designs. In the ventilation system design phase, a typically focus on ventilation effectiveness and takes into account a large number of parameter. However, the discrepancy between design and practice are often experienced mainly because operating conditions don’t correspond to the designing conditions [7-9]. Inthis work, the airflow of swirl diffuser has been studied using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) method to analyse the mean airflow and geometry influence on the results. The paper presents a comparison of the results of velocity field measurements using the PIV method and the results obtained by means ofnumerical analysis CFD. Based on the analysis the velocity flow field was evaluated and the range of effective operation of the diffuser have been determined .
