Numerical analysis of thermal comfort in Near-Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) with light radiant ceilings and diffuse ventilation

Renewable energy sources for heating and cooling buildings usually have temperatures close to room temperature and therefore a limited convertibility potential, i.e. they are of low value. To exploit low-valued energy sources Low Temperature Heating and High Temperature Cooling (LTH-HTC) systems must be developed.

Experimental analysis of air-conditioning in hospital rooms by means of light radiant ceilings

The new wards of the S. Bortolo Hospital in Vicenza (Italy) are air-conditioned by a mixed systems of radiant panels and primary air.
