Abstract

Experiments were performed to develop an understanding of the flow interactions between two heated breathing manikins seated across a table from one another in an office environment. Velocity measurements were obtained between the seated mankins at face level using a particle image velocimetry system. The results show the development of thermally driven recirculating zones in front of each manikin. These zones appear to interact in such a way to provide a mechanism for thermally driven transport between the two manikins that is substantially greater than the transport between the manikins due to breathing.
