Just joined the forum; hence my late response. Galebreaker provides CFD studies of ACC’s. The process is to model the existing conditions including seasonal prevailing winds. Often prevailing wind conditions exceed the ACC’s original design conditions causing fan vibration problems and/or reduced thermal output. The study models a variety of perimeter and under-unit configurations with a goal of normalizing or balancing the air distribution into the fans. I’m sure we have case studies from other projects that would be of interest to you.
