Characteristic of airflow as the effect of balcony, opening design and internal division on indoor velocity. A case study of traditional dwelling in urban living quarter in tropical humid region.

Gives the results of an investigation on the combined effect of balcony, opening design and internal division on the indoor airflows pattern of a living zone located on the second floor of a two storey building. It was done using N3S software. The local average velocity coefficient as a function of the position in horizontal sections of 1.00 and 1.50 m in height was used, for activity with sitting and standing positions. The number of measurement points in the living zone were used to calculate the average velocity coefficient.

Individual air distribution control panel on partition panel at personal task area.

A general trend in intelligent buildings is the decentralization of environmental controlsystems. Decentralized environmental control systems have many advantages over centralizedsystems. In order to filly utilize a decentralized control system, the control zone should becompletely individualized so that one occupant can feel free to adjust the air volume andtemperature without being concerned about affecting the comfort of other occupants. Afurniture integrated air distribution control system can provide highly individualizedenvironmental control.

Effect of partition location on the air and contaminant movement in a room.

The ventilation engineer's plan at the design stage could be influenced by many factors. It may also be different from the requirements for the final users of the spaces. In case of open-space design, which is getting popular due to its flexibility. It is more difficult to provide adequate ventilation to control the indoor air quality. Specially, when partitioning of the space is employed.

Three-Dimensional Analysis of Airflow and Contaminant Particle Transport in a Partitioned Enclosure

Determination of the distribution of contaminant particles within zones becomes of great interest, with the increasing concern for indoor air quality. In order to improve the indoor air quality in a realistic building, the air movement and contaminant transport in a partitioned enclosure with ventilation have been studied numerically and experimentally. A three-dimensional analysis of air movement, temperature distribution and contaminant particle transport is made to investigate airflow patterns and deposition of contaminant particle in a partitioned enclosure.

Ventilation performance and indoor air quality in workstations under different supply air systems: a numerical approach.

This paper describes the results of a computational fluid dynamics study to assess the air freshness and percentage of dissatisfied people due to air quality in a partitioned office with different supply air diffusers. The numerical model involves the finite-volume approach of solving governing equations for mass and momentum, assuming that the buoyancy effects are negligibly small in comparison to the inertial effects. The k-s two-equation model of turbulence is used to predict the turbulence transport of flow properties.

The study of indoor air environment in a partitioned residential building.

This paper describes the measured and calculated results of air humidity and profiles of tracer gas in a residential apartment in Taipei city, Taiwan. A complete multizone indoor air quality model was used to evaluate the test results. The concentration of C02 were employed to investigate the indoor pollutant transport. Also, the indoor air humidity was studied in order to evaluate the indoor moisture effects on human. The data from the measurements were used as simulation input data for the calculation of indoor air flow rates and pollutant concentrations.
