FN1

A gene on chromosome 2q34 that encodes fibronectin, a glycoprotein present as a soluble dimer in plasma, and as a dimer or multimer on cell surfaces and in extracellular matrices. It plays central roles in cell adhesion and motility as required in embryogenesis, wound healing, blood coagulation, opsonisation, host defence, maintenance of cell shape and metastasis. It binds to collagen, fibrin, heparin, DNA and actin.

Here we propose a virtual dynamic coupling approach based on the use of proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) of CFD snapshots of the flow field in the NOS, which efficiently couples the CFD to the FNZ models for near-real-time control of air and contaminant flow in a given building.
A brief overview of the POD modes is presented and the coupling between the FNZ and POD models is then described.
In this paper we use POD reconstruction to accelerate and improve the efficiency of coupling CFD solutions in an NOS with FNZ solutions in one office suite.
Use the FNZ model to compute the interzonal flows and zone concentrations in the office suite and the NOS, treated in this step as an extra well-mixed zone.
i0] < 0), the average concentration at the NOS side of the interface opening is computed, and the FNZ model is exercised once more for the office suite only (without including the NOS) to obtain improved concentration values for each office.
