Safety and comfort considerations demand that vehicle passenger compartment Heating/Ventilating/Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems be optimized to promote a quality environment with efficiency. Vehicle HVAC systems are characterized by multiple supply outlets, variable compartment exhausts, radiation loading and significant flow obstructions including passengers. Theoretical and computational issues are summarized for the ARINS finite element algorithm being developed for the problem class.
