A preliminary study is performed in order to design an effective ventilation equipment for the control of possible pollutants in a workshop. To this end, the Patankar's SIMPLE methodology is used to investigate the flow characteristics of the contaminated thermal deflected jet which is encounted often in practical hood system. SIMPLE-Consistent algorithm is employed for the pressure-velocity coupling appeared in momentum equations. A two equation, k-$\varepsilon$ model is used for Reynolds stresses. The prediction data is compared well against the experimental results by Chang(1989). Considering the control of the wake due to its high turbulence together with the stagnant feature has been investigated in term of major parameters such as temperature and magnitude of the discharge velocity. Detailed discussions are made to reduce the size of the wake region which give rise to pollutant concentration stratification.
