RANS Flow or Panel Flow
I am working on a project with a deadline of the start of next week, so quick help would be most appreciated.
I have attached a link to a download of a .dae file below. (built in sketchup)
Although I have used Caedium before, it was only for very simple tasks compared to the one at hand.
I need to create an air flow through the attached model, entering through the double doors at the bottom and exiting through the two doors on the second floor, just above.
It is a model of the Barbican art gallery in London.
The aim is to have a resulting video mapping how a massive blast of air would circulate through the space.
As it is for an art project the emphasis is on an aesthetically pleasing circulation of arrows rather than the data.
I have an example on my website of a still I created before, ideally i would like something similar but animated.

My main question is would the best way to go about this be through panel flow? Can i then export as .avi?
If so I think i could work on the .dae (in Sketchup) and in Caedium to bond it to a solid (maybe simplified) volume, then apply panel flow to it?
Does this sound like the right method of inquiry, before I invest too much time into it?
Thank you so much for any help.
