This article presents a case study of a multiple confluents jets system in a virtual chamber. In this study, it is obtained the behavior of the airflow in an office, simulated by a virtual camera, whose ventilation system is of the horizontal confluent jets type. The ventilation system has an inlet system consisting of four vertical ducts mounted in the corners of the compartment. Each duct has four groups of 32 nozzles, aligned and equally spaced, positioned from the base of the duct close to the floor. Each two groups of nozzles are directed towards each of the walls adjacent to the duct The exhaust system consists of a quadrangular vertical duct mounted close to the ceiling and positioned in the center of the compartment. The study uses a numerical differential model in order to simulate the Computational Fluids Dynamics. Ventilation by horizontal confluent jets creates a horizontal air velocity close to the wall surface as well as the floor surface. With the increase in the exit velocity of the jets, the interactive effect of the confluence of the jets, coming from opposite ducts, in the central area of the wall becomes more evident. The airflow resulting from the interactions of the jets has an upward characteristic towards the exhaust system.
