Natural ventilation of school buildings

 It was generally recognised that because of occupants' behaviour, natural ventilation rates were usually much lower than the accepted criteria for calculation. A great deal of anecdotal data existed which showed that frequency of opening windows bore a direct relation to external temperature and that the greater the volume the less the frequency of opening. The recent BRE survey also shows that very low ventilation rates, below 4 cubic metres/ person/hr have been found to be acceptable.
