Fast indoor airflow simulations are necessary for building emergency management, preliminary design of sustainable buildings, and real-time indoor environment control. The simulation should also be informative since the airflow motion, temperature distribution, and contaminant concentration are important. Unfortunately, none of the current indoor airflow simulation techniques can satisfy both requirements at the same time. Our previous study proposed a Fast Fluid Dynamics (FFD) model for indoor flow simulation. The FFD is an intermediate method between the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and multizone/zonal models. It can efficiently solve Navier
