The uniformity of the distribution of airflow is mainly dependent on the shape and structure of the air curtain. Therefore, it is of great significance to study the structure of air curtain. But the study of the air curtain structure with great influence on the airflow has not been reported. The purpose of this paper is to study the wind speed distribution of air curtain under different air curtain structures by CFD numerical simulation. The results show that the best size for rounding at the entrance of the air curtain and the horizontal intersection is r=520mm, increase the baffle in the air curtain, and the best size is R=250mm. Finally, the optimized air curtain will be simulated again, and the reliability of the simulation results will be verified through experiments.
