Reports study of the natural ventilation in elementary tall office buildings has been made using the analogy between the flow of air through a building and the passage of an electric current through a circuit of resistances. The prime motive forces, those of wind pressure and stack effect are detailed, and experimental values for these and other parameters related to the building are outlined. Results indicate that, for design purposes, natural ventilation can be assessed for modern slab buildings by prime consideration of the pressure generated by wind impingement and the air infiltration through windows so caused.
