A menu-driven numerical simulation was developed to model the airflow in a typical industrial process cleanroom. The effects of changing entry velocity, isolating curtain height, and return airflow are evaluated. Theoretical guidelines for minimizing the strength of recirculation zones and optimizing the airflows in the cleanroom are discussed. These simulations help identify cleanroom designs that minimize the transport of particle contamination.
