The worldwide demand for storage of data continues rapidly so the number and size of the data center are increasing constantly. Significant power consumption is dedicated in the U.S in 2006 nearly 1.5% percent of overall electricity consumption in the U.S. and as a matter of fact, up to half of this power is spending in cooling of facilities (computer room air condition (CRAC) or computer room air handler (CRAH) in a data center. As energy consumption is huge the energy efficiency is an important issue to consider in the data center. Computation fluid dynamics (CFD) can be very useful in order to provide detail information about the airflow behavior in the existing data center and simulating a data center before it is built. How to simulation needed to carry Out with Quality and trust. In this study, the real-world k-epsilon turbulent airflow model is used. The academic code ANSYS Icepak 15.0 is used to simulate the experimental values of the data center / Research Lab at Syracuse University. In this study, I studied the simulation with the boundary condition of the data center and comparing the temperature distribution with measured sensors which are located in different placed in data center room and in the next chapter verified temperature rack inlet distribution with the Ashrea envelope and in the following chapter the investigate the effect of the different supply temperature on performance parameters indices and analyses.
