In this work an air conditioning device was built with easy to find materials and variables such as the velocity and temperature of the out coming air were measured. After that, the model was tested using the Ansys’ softwares with the purpose of visualizing the efficiency of the device as well as to implement some optimization in order to increase the quality of a possible selling product.The model was drawn using ANSYS DesignModeler and then the mesh corresponding was constructed with ANSYS Mesh, in order to input the data into the ANSYS Fluent software. Inside fluent both the boundary conditions and the materials used were specified and the simulation was initialized. After the result processing it was possible to compare the simulation with the measured data as well as to implement some optimization such as an increase on the number of pipes inside the device and the exchange of its material. The analysis described above was able to prove the reliability of the method used, whereas the results obtained with the software were approximately the same as the experimental ones. The optimization implemented also demonstrated an increase on the quality of the out coming parameters.
