This development proposes a highly efficient air-conditioning airflow system for a computer-machine room having high-heat-generating equipment using forced-air cooling. The proposed system recirculates room air in the area surrounding equipment back to the cooling supply air supplied from a double floor. The recirculated air is therefore used as cooling air for computers. This system enables the blowing temperature difference of air-conditioner units to be increased, blower capacity to be decreased, and overall efficiency of air-conditioner units to be increased. Here, we have proposed an air-conditioning airflow system that decreases the amount of cooling supply air while ensuring adequate air ventilation for equipment using forced-air cooling, and a design method for achieving this system.
