This paper presents a review of literature pertaining to prediction of air flow in a room. The paper initially discusses various mathematical models adopted in previos studies and highlights the models best suited to evaluate heat transfer from a standalone water filled radiator heating system. The air flow equation accounting for forced and free convection used by computational systems is illustrated. Key parameters to be measured and used as boundary conditions are highlighted. Experimental methods and relevant systems and devices used to measure and quantify these have been summarized. An overview of the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) models and comparative study has been done to establish the best way forward.
