Here the difficulty of generalizing the PLMK will be illustrated using the same number of 11 x 11 cells used for the estimation of average [K.sub.x] and [K.sub.y].
The application of the first methodology for improving the PLM, estimation of the flow coefficient using CFD, has provided a new version of the PLM, the PLMK. Although the PLMK has given better predictions than the PLM, its drawback is the difficulty of generalizing using a parametric equation as in the PLMK-parm.
The models developed in the last sections, the PLMK and the PLMK-parm, have provided improved prediction of the velocity profile compared to the PLM.
The room was divided into 11 x 11 cells in order to directly utilize the [K.sub.x] and [K.sub.y] values for the PLMK. Since values of K other than 0.83 have made no difference in the prediction of the PLM, the value of K for all combined models with a [not equal to] 0 was set to 1.0 for all cells in the standard zone.
