Research centres around the world have developed different configurations to represent a computer simulated person. The manikins are very different with respect to size, form, heat emission details, turbulence models, etc. The variation may reflect the various possibilities in software and different standards for persons from country to country.
Two benchmark tests are introduced for the test of a CFD manikin, one for mixing ventilation and one for displacement ventilation. The idea behind the benchmark is to test the individual concept under the SAME boundary conditions. The tests of different manikins may improve the design of a CFD manikin and lead to standards.
