The performance of stratum ventilation, a recently developed ventilation strategy, is assessed in terms of thermal comfort and indoor air quality using experimental and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques. The case of a typical Hong Kong workshop under local thermal boundary conditions is used to examine the ventilation system. Various factors including percentage dissatisfied (PD) and mean air age/CO2 were computed to determine the system performance. The stratum ventilation is shown to produce improved indoor air quality and thermal comfort for this particular case study.
